Friday night and Saturday morning Shabbbat services are held weekly at Temple Sinai. Please check our calendar for specific details. Friday night services are held at 6:00 or 7:30 PM, and are either upstairs in our formal Sanctuary or downstairs in our cozy Chapel.
On most Saturday mornings, services are held from 11:00 AM to noon in the Chapel following our Minyan Breakfast. On mornings when we are celebrating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, the service begin at 10:30 AM upstairs in the Sanctuary.
The style of Shabbat worship at Temple Sinai is song-filled, joyful, and participatory. Everyone is welcome – members and non-members, Jews and non-Jews, children and adults. The service is conducted about half-and-half in English and Hebrew. Our prayerbooks include transliteration of all Hebrew passages so that everyone can participate. The rabbi offers a brief reflection on the weekly Torah portion, an upcoming holiday, or current world events at most services. Dress is generally casual, but a bit more formal when there is a bar or bat mitzvah. We sing. We talk. We meditate. We reflect. We find rest and comfort. We pray.
