“It is not good for a person to be alone.”

~Genesis 2:18

The Temple Sinai Caring Committee exists to support congregants and other Jews in the community both in their times of greatest need and their times of greatest joy. To fulfill our mission and create a caring community, the following are our current activities.


Mi Sheberach (Healing List)

Mi Shebeirach prayers are said each Shabbat for congregants, their families, and friends who are in need of healing of the body, mind, or spirit. Click the button to add names to our Mi Shebeirach list.
