My sincerest thanks to all of my Temple Sinai friends who have expressed concern and caring for me during this unfortunate time in my life. Falling and breaking a leg is not fun. I am improving everyday and your support has helped me with my recovery. Your cards and notes of encouragement bring smiles. Thank you all.
Shabbat Shalom,

Temple Sinai Jewish Movie Club

Much like a Book Club, watch the movies at your convenience and then

join us in discussion.

It’s like a Jewish Netflix.

Tuesday, January 26 at 7PM: Review of Left Luggage

Isabella Rossellini leads a powerhouse cast in the moving and emotional drama LEFT LUGGAGE, winner of the 1998 Berlin Film Festival! A Jewish philosophy student (Laura Fraser, “Breaking Bad”, ‘Better Call Saul”) accepts a job as a nanny with a Hasidic Jewish family in 1970’s Antwerp, Belgium. She has little knowledge and sympathy for their many centuries-old rules. Through her bond with the family’s five-year old son, she learns to accept and respect a culture steeped in traditions, inspiring her to find the true values of life.

TSNS is searching for qualified and certified preschool teachers, aides and substitutes for next school year! We would like to rely on families and friends of the TSNS program to refer candidates. We are accepting and reviewing resumes of qualified candidates and making selections to pursue further with a classroom observation.

We are hopeful that next year we will return back to our original classes

that are grouped by ages.

Registration for returning students will begin the end of February. Registration for new families will begin in March.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in joining our TSNS family please send them our way! Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Teresa Dickinson at TSNSNJ@gmail.com or (267) 265-7914.
