Thanksgiving Turkey Drive 

Together with Brotherhood and the Women of Temple Sinai, Social Action sponsors the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive.  Last year over $43,000 was raised for the Alameda Food Bank. Temple Sinai also recruited and trained several other congregations in Oakland and Alameda counties to run their own successful drives.

Holiday Food Drive for Greenleaf School 

Please support the Temple's food drive for Greenleaf School starting after Thanksgiving and running through December 19, 2017.  Bring your food to the marked bins at Temple Sinai Sanctuary. For more information, contact Helen Smiler or Teri Bleckner.

High Holy Days Dinner Drive 

In this annual event, congregants collect nutritious food for the Alameda County Food Bank, with whom we work in partnership on a number of hunger-related issues.  Last year, we collected over 13,896 pounds of food and raised $25,000.
