Cruise Into 60!

Celebrating Temple Sinai’s 60th Anniversary – Temple Sinai is turning 60 years old!

The past 60 years has taught us that no matter what stage of life we currently occupy or what destination we seek, Temple Sinai can be there to share our journey, support our goals, and enhance our lives with a strong and caring Jewish foundation.  From the Temple Sinai Nursery School (which recently turned 50 years old and is STILL kindling the curiosity of young minds!) to Hebrew School, through Bar or Bat Mitzvah and beyond, Temple Sinai played and continues to play a major role.

Though your path may have taken you hundreds or thousands of miles away, your contributions and past deeds are still and will always be at the core of the Temple Sinai mishpocha – your first and forever synagogue! 

Today, we reflect on our blessings for having 60 years of learning together, praying together,  celebrating our holidays and joyous mitzvot together and perhaps most memorably, being there for each other in times of sadness and grieving. 

If distance or physical limitations keep you from joining with us in person, you can still participate through the miracle of technology.  Yes, we Zoom with the best of them: 

  • Friday night services, Shabbat morning, Torah Sparks, Havdalah, Wednesday morning minyans (supporting those in mourning or recalling loved ones). 
  • Special programs for physical, spiritual, and mental well-being.
  • Stimulating seminars taking on vital issues from fighting hate to how to combat and recover from addictions.  

Reach out!  Link in!  And start your reconnection to Temple Sinai by setting sail with us on Sunday, September 11th when we launch the 60 Year Celebration with an IN PERSON Dinner Dance Cruise – see the invitation attached on the website. It offers a great venue to rekindle old relationships and start new ones!

If you are unable to personally participate in the September event, you can still take part of the 60th Anniversary Celebration.  Send us a note of congratulations or a TS memory and our ship’s captain or emcee will share it with the attendees.  

Want to make even more of an impact and help Temple Sinai continue to be a pillar of the community?…  Yeah?  Then please make a donation in memory or honor of a loved one.  You may direct it to one of the vital projects that Temple Sinai will be working on after the coming High Holidays: 

  • Project 1 – Dedicating classrooms, Garden areas or Wings
  • Project 2 – Beautifying the Grounds 
  • Project 3 – Establishing Foundations and Scholarships
  • OR, come up with a project of your own – something meaningful to YOU and your family

Please contact the TS office to discuss your ideas for a monumental donation or click on the Venmo link shown below.

Thank you for your continued love, support, and the role you have played and hopefully will continue to play in further shaping the Temple Sinai mosaic.
