Friday, August 6, 2021 28 Av 5781

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

We are pleased to announce that we will have in-person seating in the Leebov Sanctuary for Shabbat Evening Service. We look forward to sharing this sacred time with you in person, on Zoom, or live streamed on YouTube.

If you would like to attend in-person, please log into your Temple Sinai account to register for yourself and/or your family. 

Cantor Marshall Portnoy will be our guest cantor for this service as well as Friday, August 27 and the High Holy Day Services.

Cantor Portnoy has made a lasting impact on Jewish music as a talented cantor, composer and teacher. He is the Cantor Emeritus of Main Line Reform Temple in Wynnewood, PA, which he served for more 
than 20 years. An accomplished author, Cantor Portnoy’s two-volume work The Art of Cantillation has brought the skill and the joy of reading Torah and Haftarah to tens of thousands throughout the globe. Cantor Portnoy has recorded two CDs: Songs of Renewal (2006) and I Still Believe (2010).

A graduate of Yale, Cantor Portnoy was invested both by the Jewish Theological Seminary and the Hebrew Union College. 
His musical works, published by Transcontinental Music Publications, are widely performed throughout the United States, and he is the recipient of frequent commissions. In December of 2008, Cantor Portnoy was awarded the degree of Doctor of Music, honoris causa, by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. In addition to his cantorial accomplishments, Cantor Portnoy is a senior docent and lecturer at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, PA. Cantor Portnoy brings warmth and joy to the musical experience, one which we hope the whole congregation will share at the High Holy Days. 

(A small committee was formed and tasked with identifying a guest cantor for the High Holidays. The committee was chaired by Elizabeth Collura and included Carol Rosenthal, Ben Wecht, Jared Kaufman, Jennifer Bett, Natalie Sumetsky, Jan Fink, and Drew Barkley.)
