Our Featured Member synagogue for June 2010 is Temple Sinai of Brookline. We are pleased to recognize the synagogue in celebration of its 70th anniversary.

This year, 2009-2010, Temple Sinai in Brookline celebrates its 70th milestone anniversary. In 1939, a handful of independent-minded men and women formed Temple Sinai, the first Reform congregation organized in the Boston area in 85 years. In 1944, Temple Sinai moved to its current location on Sewall Avenue in Coolidge Corner, a handsome colonial-style brick building buttressed by white columns and a towering steeple, it has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, Temple Sinai is a warm and welcoming Reform congregation of about 280 households that honors individual journeys in Judaism, joyfully embracing and connecting our members in Jewish community. We are enriched by engaging in lifelong study of Torah, seeking holiness through meaningful worship and ritual, and bringing justice, healing and caring to our world. We are a caring community that is inclusive and welcomes all who seek Jewish life. Our congregation is led by Rabbi Andy Vogel and Cantor Rosalie Toubes.

We have marked our 70th anniversary year with two celebratory Shabbat events, one in October 2009 through special Shabbat worship services, a gala dinner, Torah study on the number 70 in Judaism, and studies about our history as a congregation. In April 2010, we will again celebrate our anniversary with a Shabbat service featuring the band "The Afro-Semitic Experience" and with a special documentary about the history of our synagogue made by a filmmaker who is a member of our congregation. Come pray, learn and enjoy with us. Call the synagogue office at 617-277-5888, or contact us via [email protected] or on the web at www.sinaibrookline.org.
