In Loving Memory of Zeke Berlin


On October 7, 2020 Rutgers New Brunswick flew the Rutgers flag at half-mast in memory of their Professor Emeritus Zeke Berlin.

Temple Sinai joins Rutgers in loving memory of Zeke, long time Temple Sinai member, friend, husband and all-around great guy. An original “Temple Sinai Player”, World Traveler and Avid Theater Goer, our shul is a little less bright without Zeke’s amazing glow.



Please return your High Holiday Prayerbooks

If you have no use for the Yizkor Remembrance Booklet, please return that also to Temple Sinai for proper Jewish burial. Any other items in the High Holiday bag that you do not have a use for may be returned so as to not be wasteful.
