From Rabbi White's Study 


Rabbi Michael White's Remarks at Temple Sinai's Annual Meeting

Many of the laws in the Torah’s book of Leviticus, the book from which we read each week at this season, seem outdated. This week is a case in point. The Torah commands that priests, while in service performing animal sacrifices in the Holy Temple, were forbidden from coming into contact with the dead or attending funerals, except for immediate family members.  That’s because Jewish law teaches that every time a Jew visits the cemetery or attends a funeral, we become spiritually unclean and impure.  But we can wash our hands, and we are thus purified.

From the President's Desk 


Jonathan Cheris

June is a wonderful time for the Temple, especially this year.  On June 10th we’ll honor long-time congregants with a special service to coincide with the installation of the new board. On June 12th we celebrate Shavuot with our Confirmation service, one of the largest in recent years.  Then on June 17th, we’ll have a special evening to celebrate the achievements of our Youth Engagement initiatives and our Director of Youth Engagement Ali Stamm on her 10 years at Temple Sinai.  As we end June, we’ll start our wonderful outdoor services in the courtyard.
