High Holy Days

The High Holy Days at Temple Sinai will fill your mind, body and spirit. The season is ushered in with the gathering for Selichot. Our sanctuary and social hall are opened up for the largest yearly services during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. There are babysitting services available on site and services for children throughout the High Holy Days.
