Temple Sinai Congregation is a Beit Tefilah, a House of Prayer; a Beit Midrash, a house of education and culture and a Beit Knesset, a communal home. Temple Sinai is, for all its members, a spiritual home. It’s where we come together for community, for prayer, for learning and for life cycle events.
Temple Sinai is a welcoming, caring and inclusive community that fosters lifelong learning, provides programs that address the various ages and stages of our congregants and creates opportunities to develop lifelong relationships.
We hope that you will join us and participate in any of our many programs and committees to get to know and engage with other congregants and become involved in our special community.
Temple Sinai offers an excellent range of opportunities for every member to build relationships and find a special place in the Temple community. For some, that means joining in on our participatory Shabbat services, which have many opportunities for lay leadership/involvement. For others, it means finding enrichment by volunteering in committees, social action initiatives or engaging in adult Jewish learning programs. Families value our excellent schools and child/youth programs, designed for kids aged 0 to high school and beyond. Family oriented services and activities make Jewish holidays and traditions extremely accessible, meeting you where you are.

Temple Sinai's Fair Share Model
Temple Sinai uses a fair-share model for calculating membership contributions, which takes into account each congregant’s or family’s financial resources. The objective of our model is to make joining our community manageable for each household, regardless of income level. We further recognize that tough economic circumstances can affect anyone and so we make it a practice to work with members through such difficulties. We ensure new members are not turned away from becoming a part of our (kehila kedosha) sacred community.
