Temple Sinai Happenings – June 5, 2020



The Temple Sinai Happenings


There May Be Times when we are powerless

to prevent injustice


        when we FAIL TO PROTEST                                   – Elie Wiesel




We protest against racism and racial injustice.


We protest against those who refuse to see and hear the racial injustice around us.

We stand with those who protest peacefully.

We stand with those who “yearn to breathe free” in this country that we love.

Together, in peaceful protest, we at Temple Sinai seek to Repair the World.




        If I am not for myself, then who will be for me?

        And if I am only for myself, then what am I?

        And if not now, when?  

                                                    – Rabbi Hillel
