We Welcome Everyone!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the size of our facility while practicing sacred social-distancing, and for the safety of our community, this year we will celebrate the High Holy Days online via a live-stream to our website and Facebook and we will hold our smaller, more interactive High Holy Day events and classes via Zoom.

As always, Temple Sinai welcomes all members and guests to our High Holy Day services and events. This year there are no tickets, “seats,” or nametags to reserve and our services and events are completely FREE, although we do gratefully accept freewill donations.

To make a donation for the High Holy Days, to submit memorial names for our Yizkor service, and for more information about the High Holy Days this year at Temple Sinai, just expand the collapsible sections below.
