Sinai Temple’s Social Action Committee creates innovative opportunities for the Sinai Temple community to give back. This pioneering group plans speakers around social action initiatives, increasing awareness about ways to give back. The Sinai Temple community participates in the annual Jewish World Watch Walk, fighting against genocide one footstep at a time. At Hanukkah time, many Sinai Temple families become Hanukkah Angels, adopting a family in need and ensuring that children receive Hanukkah gifts.
