Jewish Holiday Services

HIGH HOLY DAYS

High Holy Day Machzor (Prayer book)

We use the CCAR press Mishkan Ha’Nefesh which is a  modern High Holy Day prayer book, incorporating transliteration of the Hebrew with modern translations and alternative readings, making the service relevant and modern.

Music

This year the music for our High Holy Day services will be provided by Cantor Linda Ecker and Wayne Abravanel.

MAJOR JEWISH HOLIDAYS

Sukkot

Sukkot is celebrated with a family and congregational picnic in Temple Sinai's Sukkah. Sukkot services are held the 1st day of Sukkot in the morning at 10 a.m.

Simchat Torah

Simchat Torah is a time where we really bring the generations together. This event is coordinated with our Religious school PTO and teaches the next generation about the Torah scrolls. The entire Torah is opened around the sanctuary and explained as each section is unfurled.

Passover

Come celebrate our festival of freedom at the annual Temple Sinai community seder held the 2nd day of Passover. This creative service is fun and family friendly and also a great opportunity to meet out of towners who often join us to celebrate this holiday.

We hold 1st Day Passover services in the chapel at 10 a.m. and Yizkor is said during the 7th day at Passover services at 10 a.m.

MINOR JEWISH HOLIDAYS

Chanukah

Every year we offer exciting Chanukah programing from a community candle lighting with our Religious School kids, singing Chanukah songs at the Westfield Mall in Palm Desert, to our Chanukah Friday night service and dinner where anyone can bring and light their own personal menorah.

Purim

Every year, we gather for an entertaining Purim service, with a creative Megillah reading and Purim Spiel with multigenerational participation, followed by a large Purim Carnival in our social hall called “Mocktails and Megillahs.” This event is put on by our religious school PTO.
