Shabbat Morning Sanctuary Service

Our Saturday morning service is a blend of music, learning, worship and celebration. With our usual attendance of 1,000 worshippers, Sinai's Saturday morning service is renown for its musicality and depth. Beginning at 8:45 am, the pesukei dzimarah (verses of song) extends to 9:05 am. Shacharit, the morning service, often led by our shacharit children's choir, continues until 9:30 am. Then we continue with the Torah service, this includes the reading and studying of Torah, which along with the celebration of our bar and bat mitzvah, ends at about 10:45 am. The remainder of the service is the musaf led by Cantor Marcus Feldman supported by our choir, and the sermon. We conclude by noon.















Torah in the Round

The Torah has high expectations. We do too. Torah expects its followers to abide by 48 different levels of commitment. Some of those include: engaging in unhurried reflection, being persistent in study, and learning in order to teach. Singing, conversing, studying, and dancing with Torah shows commitment and dedication.

Connecting to Torah is a relationship that takes work.

Join us in Torah in the Round (3rd Shabbat morning of the month in Kohn Chapel) to build your relationships—with God, Torah and each other.

With the incredible partnerships of Rabbi Andy Feig and Dale Schatz, we engage Torah in the most interactive of ways. Every member of our service is involved—reading Torah, leading text study, opening a home for Shabbat lunch, teaching a song, or giving voice to an issue.

We are reflective, persistent, and committed—This is Torah in the Round.

Family Minyan

The Family Minyan is a warm, traditional, participatory service that is friendly to families, couples and individuals of all ages. We meet weekly beginning at 9:30 a.m. and we try our very best to be finished by noon. Our Shabbat services are always followed by a scrumptious Kiddush, friendly banter and sometimes Shabbat z’mirot. We also have our own Family Minyan services on the High Holy Days as well as on the first day of the Festivals. We celebrate Shabbat with joyful prayer in an intimate setting where families and friends can daven, learn and discuss Torah together. Children of all ages are welcome in Family Minyan and we encourage the participation of all of our upcoming B’nai Mitzvah students. Since we are a lay-led community, we are always looking for volunteers to lead a part of the service or to read Torah or chant a haftarah. We usually meet in Kohn Chapel but occasionally we meet in one of the other halls so be sure to look for our Family Minyan signs. Family Minyan is led by our Ritual Director Ralph Resnick with the support of our lay-leadership committee. Add your email address to our list and receive our weekly FM Update. Please come and experience Family Minyan, we’re sure that you’ll want to join our family!

*Bar/Bat Mitzvah minyans begin at 9:00 AM.

All other minyans begin at 9:30 AM.

Family Minyan will also be celebrating the following holidays:

All other minyans begin at 9:30AM


Once a month, we invite the entire community to join Sinai Temple Religious School in a unique service brimming with energy, music and the love of Shabbat. We encourage families' participation to sing along with Rabbi Fruithandler, Danielle Kassin, and Dale Schatz. Many of these Shabbats our students will read from the Torah.  Following the services we have the opportunity to have the lunch sponsored by a family in our community. Recommended for families with Kindergarten – 5th graders.

Sponsorships available. Please contact Danielle Kassin at 310-481-3271 or dkassin@sinaitemple.org
