Education at Temple SinaiTemple Sinai is a community of learners where people of all ages are engaged in the excitement and sanctity of study. Whether you are just beginning your Jewish education or are a seasoned scholar, you will find a wealth of possibility. At Temple Sinai, we celebrate lifelong Jewish learning with an appreciation for the history, culture and values of Judaism. Our vision is that everyone will find an open door to learning, enriching their understanding of Judaism and how to live a Jewish life.

We offer many wonderful programs for children, families and adults. Our biggest Temple-wide program is Mitzvah Day, held on a Sunday every spring. Temple Sinai is strongly committed to social action and supporting our local community. Mitzvah Day brings together children, teens, and adults to perform the mitzvah of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world. Adults are welcome to be a part of the Mitzvah Day Task Force as we plan each year for this important community event.

Every year the religious school curriculum includes a focus on a particular theme, such as hunger, the environment, and Israel. Each class participates in grade-appropriate activities related to the theme. This approach allows for in-depth study of an area important in Jewish values and history. We also conduct a variety of programs for religious school families. These include an annual Tu B’Shevat Seder, regular Shabbat dinners hosted by different families, and activites such as making challah covers.

Our adult learning programs include classes on a wide variety of topics. Rabbi Vogel also provides numerous additional learning opportunities for adults, including a Thursday morning study group where participants explore areas such as classic Jewish texts, modern Jewish theology, political issues and history. Shabbat morning Torah study takes place twice a month.

So come learn and grow with us at Temple Sinai. We welcome your participation.
