Temple Sinai Annual Giving 2020-21

Members Donate via Portal Here Non-Members Donate Here


For 146 years Temple Sinai has been a spiritual home and source of life-affirming rituals, prayer and celebration for East Bay families like yours and mine. At critical times we have been called upon to be there for Temple Sinai. This is one of those times. The past seven months have been trying, tiring and truly hard to imagine. Covid-19, political turmoil and a fraught election, disparities between rich and poor, an uptick in racist and anti-Semitic violence, environmental degradation — the list goes on and on. 

Through it all, Temple Sinai has been a shelter from the storm, a place of peace and comfort. Our dedicated clergy and staff have shown up in many significant ways. They have provided us with innovative programming, thoughtful and creative lifecycle events, inspiring High Holiday services and the warmth of a family-centered Friday night Shabbat, all within the current shelter-in-place restrictions. We are hopeful that we will soon be able to come together again, to worship and learn and schmooze, and that the coming year will bring good things for all of us.

And as we continue to weather these storms, Temple Sinai needs your support. Your ongoing generous financial support allows us to continue providing that place of refuge to our community. Our Annual Giving campaign bridges the gap between revenue from Temple membership, tuition and various fees, and the cost of running the Temple. Annual Giving contributions help offset ongoing and unexpected expenses and allow us to maintain the high quality programs and services that have been central to the tradition of our congregation and a comfort in these crazy times.

Temple Sinai is a place of refuge and nourishment — a place to renew the spirit, connect with friends and family, gather — when possible—, and organize to address social issues. By keeping our community strong, we are better able to navigate the difficulties we face and find the courage and motivation to strengthen ourselves and repair our world. Your generous financial support of Temple Sinai is a vital part of that effort. Please join me in continuing to support our community.

Thank you for your support of our community during these difficult times. Together, we are stronger.
