 A Message from Temple Sinai


Wednesday, March 20, 2020 2:00pm

Welcome to the Temple Sinai Website!  We are so glad that you are visiting us.  Due to the current coronavirus scare and safety restrictions, we have had to make a few changes to how we do things here at Temple Sinai:

  • Please know that the Temple office and building are currently closed. Our staff is working remotely.  Please feel free to call the Temple and leave a voicemail message, which we are checking regularly.
  • We are all still available through email.
  • All of our worship services are available through our live-stream broadcast ONLY. That means that for now, our doors will remain locked and we can only participate in services on-line.
  • Chavurah@Sinai and Hebrew School classes are temporarily canceled – but stay tuned for exciting virtual classes and on-line learning resources.
  • All in-person meetings, classes, and programs have been cancelled until it is safe to come together once again.
  • We have established a new Temple emergency number. If you have an emergency and need to contact our clergy, please call 504-383-5058.

 Please check our website homepage, weekly news blasts, and e-mail messages for updates, as things have been changing rapidly.  Please stay safe, stay home, be well, and know that we are here for you.

We are proud of our history of both inspired rabbinic leadership committed to tikkun olam and service to the spiritual needs of our diverse membership. Our clergy and lay leaders strive to create a congregation that serves as a spiritual presence in the lives of its members in order to help cultivate and satisfy their religious, musical, cultural, emotional, and intellectual interests and needs.
