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.


Our Vision is that Temple Sinai will be a vibrant Reform Jewish community that embodies joyful worship, lifelong learning, people caring for each other, and the creation of a more equitable world.


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

Our Core Values

These Core Values further expand on the elements of our Vision and represent the fundamental reasons that people join Temple Sinai.

We believe that the values of Reform Judaism and its rituals and prayers are the essence of our Temple Sinai community and a source of comfort, support, inspiration, and strength in our lives.

We believe in engaging individuals and families without judgment, and we welcome everyone seeking connection to our inclusive and diverse Reform Jewish community.

We believe that tikkum olam (repairing the world) and tzedakah (charity) are essential elements of Judaism, and we are committed to Temple Sinai continuing to be 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 and are committed to the State of Israel as the historical homeland of the Jewish people and as a democratic, pluralistic state.

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

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