Our Mission, Values & Plans

Our Mission

The mission of Temple Sinai is to be a center for those who seek to develop and enhance their Jewish identity through worship of God, ritual life, education, social action, concern for Israel and communal involvement with an emphasis on the enduring Jewish values expressed by the Reform movement.

Temple Sinai is a congregation where members feel a strong sense of Jewish community; enjoy a personal connection with the temple and their clergy; are intellectually and spiritually engaged; are inspired, stimulated and challenged by the Reform Jewish tradition; and are building a strong foundation for the future. We are committed to undertaking transformational internal steps to affirm and enhance our identity as a multiracial Reform Jewish community.

Temple Sinai welcomes the participation of interfaith couples and families, and people of all abilities, backgrounds and sexual orientation.

Our Core Values

We believe that Reform Judaism is the essence of our Temple Sinai community and a source of comfort, support, inspiration, and strength in our lives.

We believe in respecting and engaging individuals and families without judgment on their own paths of Jewish experience, learning, and practice.

We believe in welcoming all who participate at Temple Sinai and in celebrating our inclusive and diverse community.

We believe that tikkun olam (repairing the world) is an essential element of Judaism and are committed to Temple Sinai continuing as a strong, audacious leader for social justice.

We believe in being a caring community whose members feel a sense of belonging and support from the clergy and each other in times of celebration and need.

We believe in providing Jewish education that has a meaningful impact on its participants from early childhood through adult education.

We believe in thoughtful and transparent stewardship of our congregation’s resources.

We believe that Temple Sinai should be a vibrant, joyful, and spiritually and intellectually stimulating place.
