A Reform Congregation Serving the Greater Hartford Area
וְעָ֥שׂוּ לִ֖י מִקְדָּ֑שׁ וְשָׁכַנְתִּ֖י בְּתֹוכָֽם
And they shall make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them.
This verse from the Book of Exodus, found on the plaque of dedication in our Temple lobby, bespeaks the spiritual commitment of our Temple Sinai family.
First and foremost, our synagogue is our spiritual center, grounding us in our tradition and values. Temple Sinai is a flourishing, vibrant force within both the Jewish Community and the general community. It is a temple that adheres to the cherished values, beliefs and practices of Reform Judaism. Its members are dedicated and active, displaying a true commitment to our heritage. There is a warmth in this congregation that is felt by everyone who enters its doors, There is an abiding sense of the value of each of God’s creations and a deep desire and willingness to enable every person to feel dignity and self-worth.
Ours is truly a קהילה קדושה, a sacred and caring community. Temple Sinai continues to be a force in the community because of its serious religious standards, its excellent religious school, and its diversified adult programming. Temple Sinai was built on a foundation of devotion and love for Judaism. It has gone from strength to strength and will surely do so in the years to come. – Rabbi Bennett
