Confirmation
10th-12th Graders ONLY
Teacher: Cantor Marcus Feldman
& Clergy

In this class we'll explore our relationship with G-d, Faith, and the Jewish community through music, art, poetry, and prayer - culminating in a Confirmation service and celebration on December 15th!


Moments In Time
Teacher: Matt Baram 

Help us prove that there is beauty and meaning in every moment! Using the renowned “Jewish Lens” curriculum created by photographer Zion Ozeri, we will learn to express our Judaism through photography. For every picture a meaning; for every meaning a Torah lesson. We will also be learning some basic photography and editing skills, and by the end of the semester will create an exhibit to be displayed.


The History of Judaism: The Play!
Teacher: Lia Fischer

Throughout this class, you will rotate through Improvisation, Sketch Comedy, musical comedy jam, poetry, and storytelling to create a mish mosh original show of the history of Judaism. All students are welcome and no previous experience is needed. At the end of the sixth week, students will be able to “show off” their talents while bringing Jewish history to life!

Let the Rabbis Decide
Teacher: Rabbi Fruithandler/ Rabbi Guzik

For 3000 years rabbis have been looking for ways to uncover the presence of God in the world. Each generation adds a new layer of meaning, and understanding in the search for God. Learn with our modern day rabbis as we seek to apply this ancient wisdom to our everyday lives.


Jewish Cinema 101
Teacher: Matt Baram 

If there's one thing we know, it's that Jews + movies = awesome. So sit back, relax and come along on a cinematic journey as we examine Jewish themes and values and how they're portrayed in modern cinema.


Top Jewish Chef
Teacher: Lia Fischer

Have you ever wanted to be on Top Chef? Now is your chance! This cooking competition style class runs you through a team timed, rock around the clock, and race to the finish line with an array of Jewish foods. Not only will you be paired with your friends to see who can create the #1 Jewish dish, but everyone will get to try the goods. BETEAVON!

The Great Debate
Teacher: Matt Baram

This year we're kicking our SiHi debate skills up a notch! Not only are we going to navigate our way through hot button Jewish issues, but we're going to prepare for an epic debate showdown against another synagogue's high school debate program! Sharpen your tongue and massage your brain - it's going to get wild!


Vertical Reality
Teacher: Richard Weintraub

Vertical Reality represents the re-discovery of our inner life. Love and Fear are the only emotions in the world; love is authentic and fear is an illusion. We are engaged in a covenant or partnership which
requires listening for the voice of G-d and to acting in a loving, non-fearful way toward ourselves and others. The class is a unique blending of interactive discussions and activities. The only requirement is an open mind and heart.


Israel and the Middle East
Teacher: Prof. Saba Soomekh, PhD

In this class, we will study the history and culture of Israel, from its birth to her relationship with her Arab neighbors. Through discussions, movies, and current events, we will explore Israeli history, culture, and society. We will also discuss the Arab spring and how it affects Israel. What are people in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia fighting for, who is involved, and how does it affect Israel and the region?


Intergenerational Jewish Improv Comedy Boot camp
Teacher: Lia Fischer
Does "Whose Line Is It, Anyway?" make you laugh? More importantly, does it look like something you'd like to try? Not only is improv comedy fun to watch, it's both fun - and easy - to do. Emphasis in this class will be on creating a rich, supportive environment for creativity, spontaneity, making strong choices and increasing confidence for our teens. And guess what? We will be partnering with seniors citizens to make it extra unique and special. With my experience as a professional actor and teacher, we will build the performance skills necessary with the senior citizens in Jewish style!

Moses-Aaron Cooperative & Working with Special Needs Students
Teacher: Sinai & Vista Del Mar Staff 


Questionnaire must be filled out before class starts on Oct 6. Not all students who apply will be accepted.


Space is limited to 4 students.

SiHi students who participate in this class will have the chance to participate in the Moses-Aaron Cooperative, a program which allows us to hear the thoughts and wisdom of students with autism.  In the Torah, Moses has a difficult time speaking, and thus needed Aaron, his brother, to be his “voice”.  The Moses- Aaron cooperative seeks to bridge the gap between those with autism (particularly those who are non-verbal) within the Jewish and larger community by providing them with an “Aaron” to share their words.  Students who apply for this elective will have the chance to learn more about working with children who have special needs. Questionnaire must be filled out. Not all students who apply will be accepted. Space is limited to 4 students. Students are encouraged to come every Sunday.

Sinai Temple is a partnership between its clergy, staff, lay leaders and devoted members who are committed to supporting the tradition and vision of Sinai Temple. Your gift to Sinai Temple will enable us to continue these holy tasks for years to come. Thank you for helping us to bring our history, our beliefs and our promise to a new generation.
We are a member of the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs. We aim to provide a framework within which men can broaden their knowledge and understanding of the history and values of our people and in which they can make tangible contributions of their talents and treasure in an environment of good fellowship.
Our goal at Sinai Temple is to create a Bar/Bat Mitzvah program that is a spiritual and religious experience counseling child and family to God, the Jewish people and to each other.
The Sinai Temple Israel Center is the first synagogue center that provides programmatic resources and avenues for Los Angeles Jewry to establish cultural, professional, spiritual, and economic ties to the land of Israel.
