High Holidays

High Holy Days become introspective, with prayers and themes of human kindness and repentance as we renew our faith, family ties and understanding of the Jewish experience. Temple Sinai offers adult services and educational programs during the High Holy Days. Babysitting, for children ages one to five years old, is available during the High Holy Day services through generous gifts from the Larry Cohen Pre-School Fund. Please call the Temple office at 203.322.1649 to make arrangements for babysitting prior to the High Holy Days.
