Our machzor is Mishkan HaNefesh, a beautiful compendium of traditional prayers, poetry, essays and kavanot (intentional readings), featuring full transliteration of all Hebrew.  It is a prayerbook for the mind and heart, a resource that understands that people have different relationships to Judaism, prayer, and the themes of these observances.  One foot is in the past and the other firmly in the present, it is a machzor for today.



Sukkot/Shemini Atzeret

First day Sukkot worship is at 10 a.m. in the chapel.   Shemini Atzeret is observed on the seventh day with worship and Yizkor in the chapel.  

Simchat Torah

Simchat Torah is a time when the generations  join together in unrolling a Torah scroll.  We celebrate the Torah as different well-known parts of Torah are explained!  


Chanukah is observed on Shabbat Chanukah as all are invited to bring their chanukiot (Chanukah menorah) to be lit in the sanctuary followed by latkes, donuts and dreidel.  


The Megilat Esther is read in English with hamentaschen served for adults; the rabbi also reads "The Whole Megillah--Almost" during the worship that precedes school on Sunday. 


We celebrate our festival of freedom at the annual Temple Sinai community seder held the second day of Passover.

First and Seventh Day Passover services are held at 10 a.m. in the chapel with Yizkor  on the seventh day.


Shavout worship is at 10 a.m. in the chapel with Yizkor.
