Shanah Tovah!

Wishing our Temple Family a Happy and Healthy New Year

Rosh Hashanah is a time to celebrate new beginnings. Our Temple family comes together at this time of year to share our hopes for the days and months ahead. May our time together bring peace and blessings!

There will be a wide array of choices during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Services will be broadcast in thirty-minute segments, so you can create your own your High Holy Days experience in ways never before possible.

Begin your morning with the traditional prayers and music of the Holy Days, or navigate to Torah Study, meditation or family programming. Each day will bring with it new elements to discover!

Don’t worry about missing a thing! Services will be rebroadcast, and everything else will remain available for you to experience at any time throughout the day.

High Holy Days Shofar Hunt

Participate and Enter the Temple Sinai High Holy Days Shofar Hunt
Sundays to Fridays at 8.30 a.m.

With the rapid approach of the High Holy Days, we are more conscious than ever of our need to get together as Jews. Despite our forced distance, Temple is determined to innovate and have fun!

It’s time for a tekiah with a twist: our High Holy Days Shofar Hunt!
It’s traditional to blow the shofar every day throughout the month of Elul. This year at Temple Sinai, the tradition continues. Our Daily Boker Tov with Rabbi Michael Dolgin will end with the sounding of the Shofar to remind and help us prepare for the coming Holy Days . . . but this year, our tekiah has a twist.

Sinai volunteers will be sounding shofarot from mystery locations across Toronto and other surprise locations around the world! We may not be traveling these days, but this shofar hunt will take you places!

Here’s how to play:

  1. Join us for Boker Tov at 8.30 a.m. daily from Sunday through Friday.
  2. Watch the shofar sounding at the end of the service.
  3. Guess that day’s mystery location and complete the online form on Temple’s website.

The member with the most correct answers during the month will win a special Elul prize and can optionally have their name highlighted during the High Holy Days.

This is the perfect opportunity to get younger family members to join on Boker Tov to help guess the mystery locations each day.

The answers are blowing in the wind!
