Temple Sinai was honored to welcome New Orleans City Council President Jason Williams on October 26th. It was an informative and delightful evening. ...
The Temple Sinai Brotherhood was founded in 1928 and was one of the early members of the North American (then National) Federation of Temple Brotherhoods. Since then, continuing its founding tradition, it has achieved the unofficial designation “The Strong Right Arm of the Temple,” and has received a number of national awards.
Membership in the Brotherhood is open to any male member of the Temple and is automatically granted for the first year of Temple membership. Brotherhood activities make use of all facets of the Temple and are geared for all age groups. Brotherhood activities are diverse, serving the men of the congregation, the congregation as a whole and the community at large. From sponsoring speakers on a wide variety of subjects and ushering at Shabbat and High Holiday services, to supporting special Temple projects, conducting a monthly Bingo game for residents of Woldenberg Village (the home for the Jewish aged), providing camp scholarships for our youth and special recognition for our Religious School teachers, and supporting Hillel and the Jewish Chautauqua Society, our Brotherhood strives to be a “Temple Address” for all men of the Congregation.
Brotherhood also maintains an active social program, with it’s free Annual Fall Banquet, which includes an outstanding community speaker. The Annual Spring Bingo is a major fundraising and social event.
Brotherhood’s long and rich history of service to the Temple is its foundation for future service and achievements of excellence.
