Find out about our Evening Services

Sinai Temple is proud to offer a selection of warm, participatory religious services. Whether it be for Friday Night Shabbat, Friday Night Live or One of our Youth Shabbat services we all come together to pray, learn and be inspired with the wisdom and power of Judaism.




Friday Night Shabbat


Friday Night Service

The Friday night service begins at 5:45 pm and concludes by 6:45 pm. It is marked by music, song, and a brief drasha -- a talk by the presiding Rabbi. It is a perfect way to mark the transition from the workweek to the Sabbath, and we hope that you will join us.


1st Friday of the month - 5:45 p.m.

This Kabbalat Shabbat Service is filled with fun and singing with Ralph Resnick and Rabbi Andy Feig leading us in song and t’fillah.

Bring your parents and your STARS and SAA students to welcome Shabbat in Kohn Chapel.

We’ll even have a little Shabbas nosh after our service.
Come and have a freilach and shadi Shabbat!


Service Dates:

  • January 9 (exception)

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.
