at Sinai Free Synagogue

Vision Statement

Sinai Free Synagogue, a Reform Jewish community, embraces the value our Jewish tradition teaches us, “All of us are responsible for one another,” Kol Yisrael Aravim Zeh BaZeh. We fulfill this responsibility by nurturing a vibrant Jewish identity through Torah, worship, loving deeds, cultural and religious education, and by fostering a love of Israel. Members join together to build a strong connection between synagogue, school and home. We welcome all members to participate in our rich communal experiences and we encourage life-long Jewish learning. As a community, we share our joys and pray together on Shabbat, Jewish holidays and at family simchas. We provide support and comfort within our congregational family and the wider community by making the world a better place through Tikkun Olam, repairing the world. These shared moments create a bond within our community that enables each member to learn and develop a love and appreciation of Judaism and Jewish traditions.

Our warm and comfortable environment includes those wishing to enhance their Jewish education, those new to Judaism and non-Jewish family members. As a diverse Jewish community, we strive to be open, inclusive and responsive to all who wish to participate in Jewish life – singles, couples and families in all their forms. We provide a religious education for our children and congregants that foster the formation of a strong Jewish connection. We engage our members in rich traditions, which are shared across generations. SFS is proud of its ability to unite as a community through active Jewish living and learning, creating a “home away from home” for each congregant.
