Temple Sinai is my Sinai because by attending any event (virtually or in-person), I know my family and I will feel welcomed and loved.

My husband Michael and I joined Temple Sinai before we even moved to New York. We were living in Boca Raton, Florida, considering a move back up north to live near family. We attended a service at Temple Sinai and immediately felt at home. We joined the temple, and had B'nei Mitzvah dates for our children before even finding a house! This was one of the best decisions we ever made.

Right away, I knew I wanted to be involved at the temple. Since three out of my four children are enrolled in the Religious School, I got involved as a member of the Religious School Committee. We try to attend as many events as our busy lives allow, and everyone we have met has been so friendly and the positivity is contagious. When I was asked to get involved in leadership of the Friend of a Friend (FOF) women's group, naturally, I said yes. Spending more time at a place where I feel comfortable and welcomed, especially during the pandemic, has been a major comfort to us all. The continuity of Sinai's programming for myself and my family has been priceless. My family has been blessed to be part of the Holocaust and Jewish Resistance Program, led by Abbie and Richard Laskey; it has been incredibly enlightening. I am so grateful for this program, which has given my children the opportunity to hear first-hand accounts from actual survivors, as they never got to meet their great-grandparents who were also survivors. Having the opportunity to get to know how the wonderful clergy, staff, and friends who I already consider my "Sinai Family," helped our transition into the community. I look forward to many more rewarding Sinai experiences.

I love spending my spare time with my husband, four children, two dogs, extended family, and friends. I also love theatre, traveling, reading, swimming, and playing tennis.
