a message from our president:
Alan Chaflin

Temple Sinai is built upon a myriad of relationships between parents and children, children and grandparents, leadership and congregants, teachers and students. We learn from each other as we lean on each other.  We are an inclusive and diverse progressive congregation, welcoming and open to all who love and want to be part of a vibrant Jewish community.

We are strengthened as we stand together in good times and in difficult times.  We embrace the Jewish values of compassion, service, and social justice. We honor the bonds between ourselves and Israel. We explore and participate in all aspects of Jewish learning – from the study of Torah to the dialectic of Israeli politics.

The little ones in our Gan bring us joy, and our children in the Religious School bring us great pride. We reach out to those in need. We join together to pray, sing, chant, cry, and celebrate. We create friendships and memories to carry us through life.

Chazzan Cliff Abramson, in his role as Spiritual Leader, continues to surprise and amaze us with innovation and soaring spirituality. We are on the cusp of renewed vision, revitalized worship, and re-imagined learning across all stages and ages of living.

I am proud, honored, yet humbled, by the privilege of being President of this warm, unique congregation.

L’shalom,

Alan Chaflin
