Temple Sinai and Coronavirus

We have set up a page/blog so our members and families can keep up with our latest thinking, cancellations and schedule changes as part of Temple Sinai’s response to Coronavirus 2019. Also included are links to numerous resources at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
As the situation and our recommendations change, posts will be added to the Alerts page.


While Temple Sinai’s building is closed to protect the safety of our community, we will be using ZOOM web conferencing for worship services, classes, and meetings. You can still contact us by phone and email..


Temple Sinai’s building will be closed to the public until further notice. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy. Please call or email!
