We encourage every adult male member of the congregation to join Temple Sinai's Brotherhood, one of the many ways to become involved in the Sinai community. While some members take pleasure in our social activities (the softball team, occasional poker or bowling, the annual golf tournament), others help us perform mitzvot for the Temple and the wider community (painting the religious school classrooms, spearheading the turkey drive to feed the homeless). Those members who are so inclined produce and lead one Shabbat service every year.
100% of our dues ($36) are returned to the Temple and the Jewish community in the form of Kiddush cups for the B'nei Mitzvah, Bibles and Israel scholarships for the confirmands, camperships to Swig and Newman and whatever else our membership chooses to support. We sponsor and serve food at the Purim carnival and the end-of-year religious school picnic.
Open meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm at members' homes. The location is published well in advance in the Temple Bulletin. Please come join us and share your energy, talent and ideas.
To join Brotherhood, please register on the Temple Sinai Portal or download the membership form and send it along with your check to:
