A true community is not just the accident of a group of people occupying the same space at the same time. Community happens when people are part of each other's lives, when they show compassion in a time of hardship, and when they come together to celebrate a time of joy.
Temple Sinai was founded to be a true community. Far from the pretentiousness of a place where people go "to see and to be seen," Temple Sinai takes pride in its homey, "what you see is what you get" friendliness — a part of the Rhode Island character that we love.
We are a place where our kids are free to run around as if they were in their own home. We are a place where people laugh, dance and play with their best friends. We are a place where people have conversations about the most serious and meaningful issues in their lives. We are a place where people truly care about each other, look out for each other, and make a difference in the lives of friends and strangers alike.
