Friday Night Erev Shabbat Services
At Temple Sinai, we begin every Friday night (Erev Shabbat) at 6:00 pm with a warm, friendly, and spirited celebration of Shabbat. Our services are filled with wonderful music that includes both traditional and modern melodies. A thoughtful sermon or story from the Rabbis enhances our services. The rich mixture of Jewish tradition and the modern egalitarian spirit is inviting and inclusive for those of every age and background. We conclude our service with a delicious oneg, a time to nosh and meet new and old friends. A member of our Board of Trustees, along with staff, will be available to meet and greet visitors and congregants.
Shabbat Morning Minyan
On Shabbat morning, Temple Sinai offers a 9:00 am service. This service includes many opportunities for participation as members can sign up to share their spirit and talent by leading various parts of the service. Members often volunteer to read or chant the Torah and Haftarah portions. Others provide a short Drash to explain the portion. The Rabbis and members worship together and the atmosphere is one that encourages all to develop and share their spiritual connection to our warm and inclusive Jewish expression.
Young Family & Family Shabbat
Young Family Shabbat is a service for families with children ages 0-5. Family Shabbat is a service for families with children ages 6-12. Family Shabbat immediately follows Young Family Shabbat services to allow kids to connect to an age appropriate service.
We sing songs and prayers, listen to a story told by the Rabbi and share in some juice and challah. We try and take advantage of Colorado’s beautiful weather with outdoor services at the park, weather permitting. Come celebrate Shabbat with us!
For our Healing Service, we gather together in the sacred space of the Abrahams Family Chapel for prayers, meditations, and the warm embrace of friends to renew our sense of hope, strength and healing. Led by our clergy team, the Healing Service is for those who are struggling with their health or sadness and grief. The Healing Service is also for caregivers who seek inspiration as they pray for the welfare of loved ones. All are welcome.
The High Holy Days
Temple Sinai has a full schedule of services and worship opportunities during the High Holy Days. We offer alternatives: a “Traditional” service with our fabulous Choir; and an “Experiential” service that explores the prayers and music of the Machzor (High Holy Day prayer book) in new and creative ways. There are also High Holy Days services for young families and youth.
