Congregation Sinai helps the community celebrate all Jewish holidays with special events, educational programs and services. Congregation Sinai classes are open to the general public. Numerous services and events are open and free to the community.

Jewish Youth Education: Sunday School at Congregation Sinai is now open for registration and in session most Sundays throughout the school year. Sessions are held between 10 a.m. and noon most every Sunday morning. Sinai readily accommodates children of a variety of ages from preschool to bar/bat mitzvah age and beyond. Subjects taught include Hebrew reading and writing, prayers, Torah instruction, Shabbat and Jewish Holiday practices and traditions. As children approach Bar/Bat Mitzvah age, Congregation Sinai offers full personalized tutoring in preparation leading to their celebratory Jewish ritual and event.

Adult Education is available in various formats. Congregation Sinai offers two four-week and three different 10-week educational workshop sessions each year dealing with a wide range of topics. This first session will be devoted to discussing the five ascending levels of the soul, the awareness and communion with God. This concept is actually a fairly straightforward look at the Kabbalistic thoughts that permeate our actions throughout the year. These first four-week sessions also include The Days of Awe, Selichot to Simchat Torah with modern traditions and practices. One special session will be on Kabbalah. These four weeks will begin on Tuesday, Aug. 20, 27, with Sept. 30 and 10. This four-week session will only be $40.

Other educational program topics include an introduction to Talmud, Jewish Liturgy Traditions and Practices studies of the past, present & future, Jewish Ethics, Genesis and Science, Correlation or Conflict as well as to study Modern Israel culturally and religiously. There are many other topics we have and will continue to pursue. Adult classes are offered on Tuesday mornings starting at 10 a.m.

Torah & Extra Studies: Sinai offers free weekly Torah Study sessions on Saturday mornings starting at 10 a.m. The weekly Torah portion is read and discussed with modern and traditional perspectives. They also occasionally present additional specific topics to be discussed on Sunday afternoons. All Congregation Sinai educational programs are available on a rolling admission basis, so you can start anytime. For a minimal fee, you can take advantage of a ten-week package starting at only $100. Single classes are only $15 each. If you sign up for the Hebrew lesson classes, they are available at the same price, yet if combined with the other adult educational classes, the combined cost will be reduced to only $150.
