Celebrating Sukkot

Tomorrow, Sunday, September 30, we will celebrate the festival of Sukkot by shaking the lulav and etrog in the sukkah with our classes. Younger grades will be making decorations to hang in the sukkah too.

Then return at 7 pm for the Sukkot Torah Service in the sanctuary.

Shavua Tov!

Our first Youth Group/Jr Youth Group meeting of the year for students in grades 4-9 (and up!) will be held this Sunday, September 23, from 12:00 – 1:15 pm in the Youth Lounge. Pizza will be served and we will be sending home forms to be filled out (attached here: Youth Group Registration Form for any parents that want to turn it in early). Dues will be $25 to cover snacks and basic supplies (field trips, special events cost additional). NFTY membership may be available at a later date depending on student interest.

If you are willing and able to car pool for Youth Group trips in the local area,

Happy Jewish New Year!

The Jewish New Year (High Holy days) are almost upon us. The Temple Sinai Religious School family-our teachers, staff, and volunteers-wish you and yours a sweet and wonderful new year.

Here’s a fun video from The Fountainheads in Israel to enjoy in English and Hebrew…check it out:

School is open this Sunday, September 16 from 9:30 am – 12 pm. Please do not forget to bring in tzedakah (any loose change you have lying around is the amount we try to collect weekly-it really adds up over time and helps us put on some terrific programs!), and snack if you were assigned for the week.

Join us for our Rosh Hashanah Family Service on Monday, September 17 from 2 – 3 pm in the Sanctuary. No casual wear or casual shoes permitted. No flip flops allowed. No sneakers allowed. Dress clothes and dress shoes only. Show your respect and dress your best!

Technically tickets (they are free) are required for this service. Contact Lynne Weinstein at for ticket information.
