Pre-Shabbat Message from Our President


September 1, 2017

Dear Temple Sinai Congregants:

Happy Friday; below is a brief message before this Labor Day weekend.  Some of the accomplishments and activities during the past week at our Temple:   


  1. Religious School
  • Staffing:  We are now fully staffed for the 2017-18 school year.  Kudos to Dr. Leslie Isaacs, our Interim Religious School Director, for handling this essential task; we are fully prepared to start school and look forward to September 10th, the first day of class. 
  • Enrollment:  Enrollment continues to increase as we approach our first day of school on September 10th.   If you have not already done so, please be sure to enroll your children as soon as possible.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Isaacs or me.  Please click HERE for Religious School enrollment.


  1. High Holidays:  High Holiday preparations are fully underway.  Tickets have now been printed and will be sent out by the end of next week (September 8th) along with further communications regarding programming, logistics, etc.  As a reminder, the deadline for placing a message in our annual book of High Holiday Greetings is next Wednesday September 6th.  Please call our Temple at (303) 759-1827 or directly contact Lisa Thorner or Diana Kaplan to ensure that your message is included this year.   Finally, if you haven’t already done so, please be sure to have your dues and account set up for the 2017-18 year.  Please log into your account or contact Lorne Maltenfort, our Executive Director, with questions either by phone at (303)759-1827 or via email.


  1. Listening Campaign Phase II:  Be on the lookout starting next week for the first in a series of communications regarding Phase II of the Listening Campaign.   We anticipate commencing Phase II of the Listening Campaign in Mid-October; prior to that date we need to recruit and train facilitators and notetakers to help run each session as well as identify who is interested in participating.  If you are interested in being a facilitator, notetaker, or a participant please click on the following link to assist in this vital component of our Temple’s continuing evolution: Listening Campaign II.


  1. Golf Outing:  Our Temple’s Annual Brotherhood Golf Tournament was held this past Sunday.  Thank you to the more than 80 participants as well as all the amazing volunteers and helpers.  The event was a rousing success and great times were had by all.   


Again, please let me thank everyone for their kind remarks, positive responses and offers to volunteer or get more involved with our Temple.  Thank you again for all your interest, support and passion for our Temple.
