Hello Temple Sinai!
It was so nice to see many of our new members at the new members’ brunch this past Sunday. I want you to know that if you would like to get together for coffee or a chat, just let me know. I don’t want to impose on people’s busy lives, but I very much want to get to know you better, so be in touch.
One of the ways I think Temple Sinai shows itself to be a welcoming and friendly community is…

Shalom Horim: We are now in the Hebrew month of Heshvan, often called “Mar” or “Bitter” Heshvan, because there are no holidays in the month.

Please note when your child’s class service is (class services begin in January and are usually the first Friday night of the month to coincide with Folk Services). They begin with a Pot Luck dinner at 5:30 sponsored by the host class.
