The observance of Shabbat at Temple Sinai is a central focus of our congregational life. We strive to offer our members a variety of worship experiences and Shabbat programs.
Evening Shabbat Services
Services are held each Friday evening at 6:30 pm. Check the calendar for details about our upcoming services.
Tots (aged 0-5) and their grownups are invited to join us on our famous woodland-like playground for a morning of play and fun on the 1st and 3rd Saturday morning of the month. We’ll gather together and sing and celebrate Shabbat and enjoy some challah and juice too. Check the calendar.
Shabbat Morning Torah Study
A wonderful educational opportunity awaits all who attend weekly Torah Study on Saturday mornings, beginning at 9:15 am. The classes, led by our clergy, focus on the Torah reading for the week. Check the calendar.
Shabbat Morning Service
On Shabbat mornings when we celebrate B’nei Mitzvah, a congregational service is held at 10:30 am. Members are invited to attend and celebrate with the families and guests of our B’nei Mitzvah.
This service is an informal minyan that immediately follows our weekly Torah study on Shabbat mornings without other services scheduled. One of our rabbis will lead a brief Shabbat morning service and provide those who are saying Kaddish an opportunity to be in community on Shabbat.
Kehillat Shabbat provides volunteers with opportunities to chant a few verses of Torah or Haftarah in a supportive atmosphere. Participants can also sign-up to deliver a d’var Torah, an analysis of the parashah – the weekly Torah portion – that leads to a group discussion. Sign up to participate. Kehillat Shabbat is celebrated the first and third Shabbat mornings of every month in the Bet Am, starting at 10:30 am. For more information about Kehillat Shabbat and to receive monthly reminders, email Robyn Helzner at email@example.com.
Shabbat Mincha Service
On Shabbat afternoons when we celebrate B’nei Mitzvah, a congregational service is held at 5:30p. Members are invited to attend and celebrate with the families and guests of our B’nei Mitzvah.
