Temple Sinai conducts weekly Friday night and Saturday morning, Shabbat services. Services are generally at 7:00 p.m. on Friday evening and 10:30 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.
Come join Rabbi Perice on Saturday’s at 10:30am for our weekly Torah spark, where we read through the weekly Torah portion and discuss it from several different perspectives: theological, cultural, political, and communal. No prior knowledge is required. Just come ready to learn and engage with the text and your fellow congregants.
Special note: Weekly Torah sparks are typically postponed when we are having traditional Saturday morning services or holiday programming.
