Rabbi Michael White

Temple Sinai's Influence Extends Well Beyond Our Walls

Our programming during April is so important that I’m using my March Scribe article to share it with you.  Temple Sinai is unique among the houses of worship in our area; we partner with other important community institutions to address challenging issues facing us and facing our world.  Please do join us for these two very special learning opportunities.

From Rabbi Gordon's Study


Rabbi Andrew Gordon

Opening Our Home to Those In Need

This is the bread of poverty and persecution that our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt.  Let all who are hungry, come and eat.  Let all who are in need, come and share the Passover meal.  This year we are still here – Next year, in the land of Israel.  This year we are still slaves – Next year, free people.  - Passover Hagaddah
