Temple Sinai conducts weekly Friday night and Saturday morning, Shabbat services. Services are generally at 7:30 p.m. on Friday evening and 9:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. It is always a good idea to check the monthly "Bulletin" calendar or call the office (856 829-0658) to check the Service schedule recording. Service times can also be found on our website calendar.
Most months a Shabbat Service is designated as a Family Service. This service is oriented toward the children and includes participation from the children in our Religious School, who are expected to attend. Consult the Bulletin for dates and times.
Every other month Temple Sinai holds a Tot Shabbat. This lively interactive Friday night service is especially for young children (six years old and younger) and their families. During a Tot Shabbat service, we celebrate the beauty and wonder of Shabbat through singing, dancing, and story telling, as well as teach basic Shabbat prayers, songs and rituals. Oneg Shabbat refreshments follow the service. Tot Shabbat is a wonderful way to introduce your toddler or preschooler to Jewish worship and to other children in the Temple Sinai community in a relaxed atmosphere. The Tot Shabbat is held at 7:00 pm and usually lasts 30 to 45 minutes. Please refer to the Bulletin for dates.
A Study Brunch is held the second Saturday of each month. An abbreviated service from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. is followed by an informal, interactive group discussion of relevant Jewish topics over a light brunch. Consult the Bulletin for dates and topics.
High Holiday Services
Services for the High Holidays are held on Slichot night, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Morning services begin at 9:30 am and are held in the Main Sanctuary, led by Rabbi Perice. A Family Service for children ages 5 to 8 years old and their parents lasts about 1 hour and is held in the chapel at 9:30 a.m. Following the Family Service is a Junior Congregation Service for children ages 8 to 12 years old, also lasting for about one and a half hours. Refreshments are available for the children following both services. Childcare is provided in our nursery room for children ages 18 months to 7 years old, however pre-registration and a small fee are required. Contact David Caplin, High Holiday Chairperson, at 856 439-0870 for more information. Congregants will receive High Holiday tickets, with service schedules, in the mail. Tickets are required for admission into the main High Holiday Services for security reasons, and are included as part of your dues. Seating is on a first come basis.
