The social action committee is always looking for new members who want to get their proverbial hands dirty.  Each affiliate group at Sinai does so much to help the community as a whole.  On this committee we look for opportunities to unite all of the synagogue behind some key projects.

Home For Good

Home for Good works to end chronic homelessness in LA.  Gather your household goods and help a formerly homeless person make their new home a place to love!

Hanukkah Toy Drive

Join Sinai Temple's annual toy drive!  Donate a new, unwrapped toy to the children at Vista Del Mar.  Toy collection bins will be located throughout Sinai Temple starting in early November.  Contact the Program Department for more information.

Hanukkah Angels

Adopt a child and his or her family for Hanukkah. As an angel, you will buy a special gift that will make Hanukkah brighter for those in need.  Team up with your family, your friends, or be an angel on your own. You will fulfill wishes, and your hearts will be overjoyed.

Sinai’s Social Action Committee is organizing this effort among our members for Chai Lifeline. This program fills up every year, so please let us know if you're interested in participating by mid-September.

ATID's Christmas Day Volunteering

On December 25, members of the Atid community will volunteer at CBS Studios to provide a hot holiday meal for the homeless community in West Hollywood.  This program is in collaboration with the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition and serves over 300 individuals. 
Chair:  Matt Baram mbaram@sinaitemple.org

Food Forward

Throughout Los Angeles County there is an astounding amount of produce thrown out everyday.  Food Forward seeks to reclaim those nutricious fruit and bring them to those in need.  Join us as we go to a private orchard and save hundreds of pounds of fruit.

Chai Lifeline “Bundle of Happiness”

Join dozens of volunteers to assemble care packages for ill children for this "Bundles of Happiness" Event.  Each year, we create over 250 care packages, which are then distributed to children with serious illness throughout Los Angeles by Chai Lifeline, a wonderful local charity.   Thousands of toys are donated by companies nationwide to make this inspiring event a huge success.  To donate products and/or find out about volunteering, please contact:

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.
Sinai Temple's 20's & 30's Community
Torah in the Round regularly meets on the third Shabbat of the month, usually located in Kohn Chapel. 
We are ready to commit to Torah—through reflection, persistence, and study. Are you? Welcome to Torah in the Round!
A warm, traditional lay-led family friendly service. We meet weekly, beginning at 9:30am and finishing at 12 noon with a scrumptious kiddush. Come join our family!
