Welcome to the Home Page of the Sinai Temple Men’s Club

“Where Jewish Values Come to Life”

The Men’s Club provides a unique and warm environment in which our members meet for programs, work together and simply have an enjoyable time with others who share our Jewish values, a commitment to Israel and a desire to lead and give back to the community.

We have regularly scheduled meetings -- usually the first Tuesday of every month except for July -- where we bring extraordinary and engaging speakers to talk about Jewish values, the State of Israel, health, self-improvement, spirituality and leadership. The meetings typically begin with a free, light dinner, followed by a chance to mingle with other members and guests, and then our program.

The Men’s Club is devoted to the well-being of Jews throughout the world and specifically in the State of Israel. Our monthly programs include speakers who share their views on Israel’s historic and unprecedented achievements, the challenges it faces, and ways we can be effective in supporting the only Jewish state we have.

We also host programs with experts on health issues, personal development and, in general, what is sometimes referred to as self-help or self-improvement efforts.

Besides our programs, we have many annual events, including our Burning Bush Awards dinner, where we honor those who have made extraordinary contributions to our communities. We sponsor excursions to meaningful sites in Los Angeles, game nights, wine tasting, and sports events in Sinai Temple’s three gyms.

We hope that you will not only attend, but will join the Sinai Temple Men’s Club. It is open to everyone. It is the perfect way to meet others who share the love of Judaism, who want to bring Jewish values to life, and who are committed to having a good time while giving back to our community.

All the best,

Cary B. Lerman

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.
Sinai Temple's 20's & 30's Community
Torah in the Round regularly meets on the third Shabbat of the month, usually located in Kohn Chapel. 
We are ready to commit to Torah—through reflection, persistence, and study. Are you? Welcome to Torah in the Round!
A warm, traditional lay-led family friendly service. We meet weekly, beginning at 9:30am and finishing at 12 noon with a scrumptious kiddush. Come join our family!
