Marking the Miracles 

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haOlam
Shehecheyanu, v’kiy’manu v’higianu laz’man hazeh
Blessed are You, Eternal Our God, Ruler of the Universe
for giving us life, sustaining us, and enabling us to reach this unique moment.

From the President's Desk 

 

Jonathan Cheris

Dear Friends,

As we begin 2017, Temple Sinai’s commitment to our congregational family remains unwavering. Your clergy, staff and volunteer leaders are engaged with delivering a wonderful lineup of programs and events. We will continue our tradition of being a shining star on Long Island and the largest Reform Synagogue – a source of pride for all of us.

From Our Religious School

 

Cantor-Educator Elena Schwartz

7th Grade / Mitzvah Makers

Our Religious School curriculum this year is focused on the link between our students’ development as emerging Jewish adults, their ethical behavior (middot), and the performance of acts of  kindness (g’milut chasadim). One aspect of our curriculum that we are currently looking at is the issue of bullying and the Jewish values that can help us understand and respond to bullying.

From Our Nursery School

 

Debbie Neuschatz, Nursery School Director  

My Jewish identity has evolved over the years. I grew up in Levittown, in a predominantly non-Jewish neighborhood. My friends were not Jewish and most of the students in my high school were not Jewish. My family belonged to a Conservative synagogue and we attended services on the High Holy Days, had Passover Seders, lit the menorah and had Chinese food on Sunday nights.
