Our Broader Community
Temple Sinai has vibrant lay-led groups that offer daytime and evening programming and opportunities to do social justice projects and acts of kindness. For every age and stage, our tikkun olam projects range from local initiatives, including clothing and food drives, preparing and delivering meals to the homeless, providing much needed toiletries to shelters or warm clothing to those in need, to international projects that include working with the Reform community in Israel to construct a preschool, knitting hats and scarves for the Israel Defense Forces, and even giving sight to those who cannot afford glasses.

A message from a father and son who went out on the MJRH van
Last night was great! What an eye-opening experience. The night ended early as we gave out all the food/coffee by 9ish. Regardless, we met many people, had some great conversations and were all feeling very good about giving back to the community. Speaking for my son and myself, we both met and talked to several memorable people, some of which might make it into my son’s recount of his portion.
For me personally, we stopped on Richmond Street, just east of Yonge Street. There was a blue tarp and Lauren got out and took some food and a coffee to the person under the tarp. My wife and I have driven downtown for years and I’ve seen the tarp. While I was pretty sure there was someone under it, I pushed it out of my mind. This experience brought it to the forefront and I will not pass by again thinking about the people and without trying to help. I was also pleasantly surprised by the politeness and thankfulness of the people we met. As I said, it was a great evening and experience.
My son and I have already talked about going out again.
Thank you for this great opportunity.
