 Funds

 General Fund

Most needed - General operating funds used to pay salaries, utilities, administrative costs and a portion of religious school expenses.

 

 Rabbi's Discretionary Fund

These funds are distributed by our Rabbi. In particular, Rabbi assists the needs of our religious school students, so that no child whose family may not be able to afford to fund all of the religious school costs are left out.

 Music Fund

Secure Our Future Fund

Memorial Plaques

Temple Sinai offers the opportunity to honor the loving memory of a departed family member or close friend by having his or her name inscribed on a Memorial Plaque placed on our beautiful Memorial Wall in the Nash Sanctuary.

The Memorial Plaque will be lit on the Yahrzeit and Yizkor days with Kaddish recited on the respective Shabbat.

A Yahrzeit notification will be sent to you for the Yahrzeit and your loved one’s name will be listed in perpetuity in our annual Book of Remembrance that is distributed to the congregation on Yom Kippur.

Memorial Plaques are $500.00 each. To reserve or purchase your Memorial Plaque, please complete and mail the attached form with payment to Temple Sinai. We will notify you when your plaque is completed and placed on the Memorial Wall.

Complete the form and return to the Temple Sinai office.

Tree of Life

Have you noticed our “Tree of Life” on the wall in the Temple lobby by the Sanctuary door with the engraved leaves and stones? It is a great way for us to help Temple Sinai raise funds while getting something special in return that will last for many, many years. For $300 per leaf you can honor a teacher or special mentor, acknowledge the birth of a new baby, a birthday, wedding, anniversary, bar/bat mitzvah, Hanukah gift, or any type of celebration. Of course, this is also a perfect way to memorialize the loved ones we have lost. In addition, small stones and large stones are available for engraving and sit at the base of the tree. The small stones are available for $1,000 and larger stones are $1,500. To make this fundraiser even more affordable consider “chipping in” with other congregants to purchase a leaf or rock.

Please print and return to the Temple with your payment: Tree of Life Form.

Yahrzeit

In Jewish tradition, we remember and honor our loved ones on the annual date of their death, a date known as the Yahrzeit. It is a Jewish custom and part of the foundation of Judaism to perform an act of tzedakah, or charity, on his or her Yahrzeit to honor their memory. This generally takes the form of a donation to a synagogue or other institution where the deceased was associated.

Make a donation in honor of your loved one's memory.
