Prayer is a language that each of us speaks and hears in a different way. When we pray together, we try to find meaning within the chorus of diverse voices.
Our services are fully egalitarian (men and women participate equally). We seek a healthy balance between the traditional and the creative. Services are conducted in Hebrew and English, using both traditional and contemporary melodies. Most of our members have a Reform background, but those with Conservative backgrounds, members who are Jewish-by-choice, and multi-faith families are welcomed.
Temple Sinai offers several forms of Shabbat worship, in recognition of the varied histories, demographics, and preferences of our members.
