WE HAVE LAUNCHED A CAPITAL CAMPAIGN TO. . .
…Improve our Facilities
To meet the needs of our members for Shabbat and holiday services, lifecycle events, learning, and community-gathering, we need flexible spaces that match Torah and the Jewish calendar to members’ lives and create a binding sense of community.
…Support our Clergy and Programs
One of Temple Sinai’s core values is that our members experience a personal connection to the clergy and to each other.
Our Challenge and Opportunity
Today, we are a community of over 1,200 member families who worship, study and teach, celebrate life-cycle milestones, comfort the bereaved, meet for community events—and welcome all who wish to join us. We have been committed to living Jewish lives guided by Torah and modernity with dynamic clergy, powerful social action efforts, and outstanding Jewish education programs for nearly 70 years. As a result, Temple Sinai is bursting at the seams! Join us in shaping the future of Temple Sinai so that we can remain a center of Jewish life for years to come.

If I am only for myself, what am I?
If not now, when?”
