Life Cycles

We’re here for you

Temple Sinai is here to celebrate with you during joyous occasions and to comfort you during times of sorrow. Our clergy and educators can help you choose a Hebrew name for your new son, design a baby-naming ceremony for your daughter, or plan a wedding that suits your family.

Almost every Shabbat during the school year we welcome young adults into the Jewish community celebrating their bar/bat mitzvah. Youth learn to understand the service and the Torah portion as well as learn to participate in the Shabbat service. Our inclusive community welcomes and accommodates learners with special needs.

Whether you are welcoming a baby, hosting a wedding or rejoicing  at a bar/bat mitzvah, we encourage you to celebrate here. There are various rooms available for dinners and parties and several caterers to accommodate every event need.

At times of loss, our rabbis and cantors are present with families and officiate at funerals and memorial services. Temple has a reserved area at Pardes Chaim and an interfaith section at Lambton Hills Cemetery.

COUNT ME IN
Since joining the Temple Sinai Ensemble Choir about five years ago, I’ve made some wonderful new friends. Singing together, under the direction of the talented and charismatic Charles Osborne, we’ve shared many moving and spiritual moments as well as moments of hilarity and fun. Music draws people together and gives us the opportunity to communicate without words. I treasure our Tuesday evening rehearsals and the wonderful performances we’ve had the privilege to participate in.

Our children have all attended Temple Sinai programs and have connected with various shinshins over the years. Our children have asked us a few times to host a shinshin, and this year the timing was right for our family.

Many participants in Canasta Connections are lifelong Temple friends with whom we have socialized for decades. But we’ve also met some new people. We’re learning something every week as we become better at the game. I do wish more men would join us! I’ve mentioned Canasta Connections to a few guys, but no takers yet. Its lots of fun and it’s certainly a new experience being the only man among the participants.

We were inspired to be part of the ShinShinim program because of our desire to expose our children to Israeli culture while expanding their knowledge. The world is so diverse, and through hosting several ShinShinim over the years, our children became more educated about the complexities and nuances of a different culture. The added bonus is that we made great memories and forged lasting relationships!
