How good and pleasing it is to sit together in community
Sinai Temple stands as a beacon of light, serving our community through times of celebration and times of hardship. Our Temple fulfills its sacred duties as a spiritual center through soulful prayer services, a place for community events, educating our children, charitable programs, and one-on-one comfort and guidance during life’s most challenging moments. You’ve played an instrumental role in making Sinai Temple’s enduring impact possible.
As we come together for the High Holy Day services this year, we are honored to celebrate and welcome our new leadership. With Rabbi Nicole Guzik and Rabbi Erez Sherman as our new Senior Rabbis, we will continue to flourish and fulfill our mission of remembering our history, cherishing our present and securing our future.
We are asking for your financial contributions to ensure the continuity of our Temple’s spiritual services while strengthening the bonds that tie us together as one family. Your support will assure us the ability to continue nurturing a space where people can seek spiritual guidance, form lasting friendships, and experience the profound joy of collective worship.
Together we pray and learn, rejoice and mourn, and welcome a new era for Sinai Temple. With gratitude,
