Oral History Project

Longtime members of Temple Sinai tell their own stories about our congregation. Their memories reach back to the founding years and capture the struggles to create a unique Reform congregation in Washington, D.C. This Oral History Project is part of the work of the temple’s Archives Committee and is supported by the Harris Jewish History Fund; please consider making a contribution to support future projects.
