From Rabbi Gordon's Study 

 

TAKING THE TIME TO…

We Jews really like to joke that the holidays are either early or late; they never seem to fall on time!  Well, this year they are REALLY late!  Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur both fall during the month of October, towards the later end of the High Holy Day window.  One of the benefits of the Holidays late arrival is that we have more time to prepare for them.

From the President's Desk 

 

Jonathan Cheris

Change is a constant companion for many organizations.  Here at Temple Sinai, we’re no different.  During my tenure on the board we’ve had to face many challenging leadership changes including Associate Rabbis, Cantors as well as our Directors of Education and Youth Engagement.

From the Cantor-Educator

 

Cantor-Educator Elena Schwartz  

A Goal for The New Year

As we stand at the threshold of the New Year 5777, our tradition implores each of us to engage in Cheshbon HaNefesh - examining our deeds during the past year and taking stock of the kind of person each of us will be in the coming year. Of the many Middot - moral virtues - which we are trying to instill in our children and in our entire Religious School community, Shmirat Ha'lashon - the ethics of speech - is perhaps the starting point for which Judaism strives.
