Getting Ready for the High Holidays…


Jointly with Congregation Beth Tikvah

This Saturday, August 28

at 8:00PM by Zoom


Our society remains in the midst of incredible suffering. On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we read many poems and prayers describing God as Judge, Parent, King, and Ultimate Arbiter of life and death. Which begs the question:

“If God Is Good, Why Do Pain and Suffering Exist?

Temple Sinai

Meet new members,

Vivian and Rich Lewis.

How fortunate for us that we have new members who are eager to be active and involved in Temple Sinai!

Rich and Vivian both enjoy the outdoors – especially kayaking and hiking. They already joined Temple Sinai on the last outdoor walk. Rich is very familiar with areas around the Pinelands and is the author of a recently published photography book, available on Amazon! Vivian is a member of the Pomegranate Guild and is a creative and capable quilter and does a variety of stitchery. Both Vivian and Rich have been attending Friday night services weekly and Rich says we can use his comment about why they joined Temple Sinai. “Meeting Rabbi Perice was “love at first sight.” They love the friendliness, the Shabbas Joke of the Week, the singers, and those kids who come on and sing every week!
