Israel Center Education

Israel Center: EducationThrough educational programs, the Center will allow us to learn more about Israel, and thus, learn more about ourselves as Jews. Israel is our spiritual home. We are bound to the land by history and destiny. We are blessed to live in this rich and good land and to live in a time when Israel exists. This modern State is an historic achievement, a celebration of our faith, our ideals, our history, and our culture. The Sinai Temple

Israel Center will provide a comprehensive educational experience for the study and understanding of Israel for all ages through educational missions and extended study programs, lecture series with prominent Israeli scholars, tutorial sessions for those who wish to expand their personal connection to Israel, and a communications center to connect
Jewish institutions around the world.

The David and Angella Nazarian Youth Leadership Program is an elite nine month program for ten 9th grade Sinai Temple students. Our two and ½ hour sessions include interactive team building, education seminars, and stimulating peer and mentor/mentee conversations and a winter break trip leadership mission to Israel. These students will become instilled with values of Judaism and leadership and develop a love for the land and people of both Israel and Los Angeles. As well, our fellows will build a connection to Sinai Temple, and learn about other Jewish organizations where they can further develop their Jewish leadership training after the completion of the program. Part of each session will be devoted to learning how to write and present a business plan with the expectation of each fellow developing their own project that will cater to the needs of Israel and the Los Angeles Jewish community. As well, there is an expectation for each fellow to meet with their given mentor in between each session.

Sinai Temple is a partnership between its clergy, staff, lay leaders and devoted members who are committed to supporting the tradition and vision of Sinai Temple. Your gift to Sinai Temple will enable us to continue these holy tasks for years to come. Thank you for helping us to bring our history, our beliefs and our promise to a new generation.
We are a member of the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs. We aim to provide a framework within which men can broaden their knowledge and understanding of the history and values of our people and in which they can make tangible contributions of their talents and treasure in an environment of good fellowship.
Our goal at Sinai Temple is to create a Bar/Bat Mitzvah program that is a spiritual and religious experience counseling child and family to God, the Jewish people and to each other.
The Sinai Temple Israel Center is the first synagogue center that provides programmatic resources and avenues for Los Angeles Jewry to establish cultural, professional, spiritual, and economic ties to the land of Israel.
