Interfaith Families

Interfaith Families are Welcome at Temple Sinai!

Temple Sinai holds the mitzvah (religious obligation) of keiruv (drawing people close) among the most important in our tradition.  We actively welcome interfaith families into our community and we encourage their participation in synagogue life.  Temple Sinai is honored to count many interfaith couples and families among our “Family of Families.”

Interfaith families at Temple Sinai gather regularly to talk about our lives, learn Jewish traditions, compare how we celebrate holidays and handle issues unique to our situations.  We gather in the afternoons or evenings, sometimes in people’s homes and other times at Temple.  We support each other in times of need and difficulty as well.

Contact Rabbi Gibson  (412) 421-9715 ext 119 for more information.

 

Celebrate Shavuot

Celebrate Shavuot

Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period, the Omer, between Passover and Shavuot. One of the three pilgrimage holidays mentioned in the Torah, it celebrates both the harvest of the first fruits and the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai over 3,000 years ago.
