October 2016 Update

Hi all – so many opportunities for Families with Young Children are on the calendar at Temple Sinai, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you!

THE ICE CREAM TRUCK WILL BE AT TEMPLE SINAI! Come to the Temple on Tuesday evening, September 13th, anytime between 6:30pm and 7:30pm, to grab a free ice cream, reconnect with old friends and hang out with new ones! All are welcome – be our guest! 

Just 10 days later, join us on Friday, September 23rd for our first Tot Shabbat of the new (school) year. The service will begin at 5:30 pm and will be followed by a light dinner and activity in the social hall. We’ll start the year off with pizza and salad (and dessert, of course), but don’t get too comfortable with that menu. We’ll be changing it up throughout the year – opportunities to sponsor a Tot Shabbat service and/or dinner are available, and menu suggestions are always welcome! Please RSVP by clicking here to let us know that you will celebrate with us. Also, please note that we usually print the sign-in sheet on Wednesday afternoon, so if you RSVP after that time, we ask that you add your name to the bottom of the sheet so that we know that you were here. And no need to eat and run – stay for a Wine & Cheese reception and our beautiful Friday night Shabbat service immediately following Tot Shabbat.

Looking for ways to welcome the New Year (5777)? The Temple Sinai community has opportunities for all ages and all interests. Join us in kicking off the Rosh Hashanah festivities with honey tastings at Kings in Short Hills -- Friday afternoon, September 23rd from 3:30 – 5:00 pm or Monday morning September 26th from 10:30am – 12:00 noon. The community observations continue with our Children’s Services on Rosh HaShanah (Monday, October 3rd) and Yom Kippur (Wednesday, October 12th) at 2:30 pm. We’ll be singing, dancing, and saying prayers in a 30-minute, family-friendly service for children ages 8 and below (and the adults who love them). No tickets or RSVP required – everyone is welcome to take part.

Finally, reserve Tuesday evening, October 18th for a family Sukkot celebration – Pizza in the Hut – and Saturday evening, November 5th for Tot Havdalah. Look for more information (and a link to RSVP) in the October “Families with Young Children” email blast.
