Temple Sinai is Turning 60

Temple Sinai is about to celebrate its Diamond Anniversary!  For some of you reading this email, you’ve been there from the very beginning.  You literally put your blood, sweat & tears into making Temple Sinai what it is today.  For many of you, Temple Sinai has been your home away from home since you moved into the area – your children became a Bar or Bat Mitzvah here, perhaps Confirmed as well.  And for others, Temple Sinai is a new home but a place where you immediately feel embraced and welcomed  — and you’ll soon be making memories of your own.


Please sit down and watch the attached video link below – beautifully made by our own
Aaron List & Steve Hochman and the paragraph that follows the montage.


 Share this video link with your children, your old friends who have moved out of the area and no longer belong to Temple Sinai and anyone you think has been touched by Temple Sinai in the last 60 yars.


Every Tuesday

10:30 -11:30 AM
