LOSS

At Temple Sinai, we understand the difficulty and sensitivity around the subject of death. We provide support to all members of our community during this transition. 

When a Death Occurs

In the event of bereavement, Temple Sinai members should call 941.924.1802 as soon as possible to notify our clergy. During office hours, call to speak to Rabbi Kahn or Chazzan Abramson. After hours, please call 832-776-7382 or 941-356-3532. Our clergy will help you figure out your next steps. We are here to provide comfort, counseling, guidance, and support with funeral, burial, shiva, and other arrangements.


Notifying the Temple Sinai Community

In the event of bereavement, Temple Sinai members should call 941.924.1802 as soon as possible to notify our clergy. After funeral arrangements have been made and shared with our office, a condolence email is sent to the Sinai community as soon as possible with the information you would like people to receive about the funeral and/or shiva.  A mention will also appear in the monthly magazine, The Tablet.

Funeral Services

Temple Sinai can recommend some useful resources including funeral homes, cemetery and synagogue directions, bereavement services, Jewish funeral customs, funeral etiquette, as well as practical and spiritual pre-planning materials.

Cemetery Plots

Temple Sinai owns a section of land consecrated as a Jewish cemetery in Palms Memorial Park located at the corner of Honore / Fruitville Roads in Sarasota. Sinai Garden allows for traditional burials as well as burial for those who choose cremation. The Garden provides for flexibility with several different ways for family members to be buried in the same area whether or not they all choose burial or cremation.

We encourage our members to make “Pre-Need” arrangements in order to provide “peace of mind” to their families and to relieve them of a financial burden. For questions or to schedule a visit Sinai Garden, please contact Cemetery Chairman, Marvin Glusman at 941-342-8124.
