Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is just around the corner and we want you to know about the many opportunities for connection, education and culture through Temple Sinai. An important aspect of synagogue life is the concept of beit k’nesset, being a center of community. We are a place for religious and cultural activities and here are some highlights on the side of Jewish culture and fun:
On Saturday, October 15 save the date for the Biggest Little Sukkah Party with live music, food and fun the night before Sukkot officially starts! Get in the joyful mood of our harvest holiday with this event!
Our annual Hanukkah Gift Bazaar is planned for November with unique gifts, jewelry and artwork from local vendors. You can enjoy refreshments while shopping for your family and friends. We also have another in our Lunch & Movie series featuring a film about a special group of Jewish war veterans in WWII who used their German language skills to the Allied War effort. Come have a delicious meal then enjoy the film and a guided discussion.
In December we are hosting a professional Comedy Show with performances by four different Jewish comedians followed by dessert and coffee.
Our Familyhood Committee is planning a fun fundraiser for Sinai School and Family programming in April with dining and dancing to the music of the 50’s. There will be a silent auction and raffle with funds benefitting our youth programs.
We have an active youth group, SUNNY, for teens and programs for parents with children of all ages. The Sisterhood and Men’s Club provide events throughout the year. Find out more on our website at www.sinaireno.org or our Facebook page.
Temple Sinai has a wealth of resources for your mind, body, and soul. Our focus this year is on being inviting, receptive, welcoming and inclusive, giving everyone in our community an opportunity to thrive.
