This year we will once again offer the congregation the mitzvah of placing the names of loved ones who have passed away into our Memorial Book for Yom Kippur. Please return forms to the TES office before September 8, 2023.

What are High Holy Days like at Temple Emanuel Sinai?

The High Holy Days are a time for reflection, introspection, prayer, and re-connection. Temple Emanuel Sinai offers a variety of services for children and adults to meet the spiritual needs of our diverse community. We invite you to join us in celebrating and observing these special Holy days.

Our services are a blend of traditional liturgy and contemporary readings, as found in the new Reform Machzor (High Holy Day prayer book): Mishkan HaNefesh. The way we use our text allows us to create an environment that is welcoming and reflective of those with a wide range of theologies or none at all. The words and prayers are elevated by our inspirational music.

We find when gather at this important time of year, it is our warm community that truly enhances our experience. It is the people in the sanctuary, not the sanctuary itself that makes worship holy.

Not already a member of our congregation? We look forward to you joining us in worship either in-person or online. Our High Holy Day Services never require tickets.
