“Judaism has been an awesome experience for me. Here, at Temple Sinai we have shared breathtaking moments of caring, sharing, study, dreaming and worship. Temple Sinai is the place to begin and continue one’s search to become the best Jew we each can become in a supportive, user friendly, contemporary and, most importantly, Heymish environment.”
