Currently, our Shabbat worship begins at 7:30pm. The first Friday of every month is our Family Shabbat Worship. During this service, one of our religious school classes co-leads worship with our Rabbi and participates in a find and relevant skit. Holiday/Festival services which are conducted on Friday night also begin at 7:30pm. At the conclusion of each Shabbat our community shares in a delicious oneg, sponsored by a family celebrating a simcha or in honor of a loved one.

Saturday morning: Shabbat morning services are held when we celebrate calling up a student who is to become b’nai mitzvah at 10:15 AM.

Continuing in July and August, our Shabbat services are led by our lay leadership at 7:30pm.

Members of Temple Sinai and friends observe and share in Life Cycle Events during a Friday night service. In conjunction with our Rabbi, this is a joyous event to be shared with the entire community.

With every step of recovery, Temple Sinai prioritizes community health and safety. Our decisions are based on the CDC, NYS, the needs of our community and our virtual offerings.

We continue to try to offer hybrid worship, which is conducted by temple volunteers. If you can volunteer to Zoom for a Shabbat worship, please contact us.

Recent decisions:
-You no longer need to show proof of vaccination.

-Masks are still optional, though we encourage them for those who are health compromised or unvaccinated to minimize the risk to themselves and others. We can provide a mask if you arrive without but want one.

A reminder: wearing a mask does not mean someone is unvaccinated or ill. They may be planning to travel, work with immunocompromised people, or may simply feel more comfortable wearing a mask in public spaces so please be respectful of everyone’s choice.

Members attend HHD services at no charge. Friends or family who belong to out-of-town Reform congregations may worship with us by having their home congregation notify us as to their membership.

Non-members and members with out-of-town family not affiliated with another Reform congregation may purchase guest tickets for a nominal charge. For High Holy Day ticket information please contact Asha: asharotstein@gmail.com.

All Holiday/Festival services are held at 7:30 on the closest Shabbat, including Sukkot, Simchat Torah/ Consecration, Chanukah, Purim, Pesach, Yom HaShoah, Yom HaAtz’maut and Shavout.

Purim services are fun and a bit chaotic. Our choir joins in the fun, our parade of costumes is joyous, and for our Purim spiel all are invited to participate.

Family Chanukkah Shabbat is joyous and includes our community-wide chanukiah (menorah) lighting. Everyone is encouraged to bring their chanukiah.

Before Shabbat worship begins, together we light our chanukiot. These meaningful candles illuminate our sanctuary during worship.

Scout Shabbat is acknowledged during February when we honor all our scouts.
