We are an egalitarian Conservative Jewish synagogue serving the greater South Bend, Indiana, area since 1932. We pride ourselves on the community atmosphere we have created, where members of all ages gather together to celebrate, learn, worship, and share in each others' lives. Whether you're interested in our nationally-recognized youth and family education program, our daily minyan, our weekly community luncheons following Shabbat services, the Rabbi's frequent educational programs, or any other aspect of our community, we welcome you to the Sinai family.

Sinai Synagogue's youth education program -- FEAST -- was featured in an article by JTA, a leading source of global Jewish news. According to the article, the FEAST program:

  • is an example of a synagogue creating "new and exciting ways of engaging their congregations and creating services that their members look forward to attending"
  • is an example of "one of numerous approaches that congregations in small communities are employing to stay relevant and vibrant"
  • is "a solution that’s helping to reenergize the Conservative congregation"

The article also highlighted Rabbi Friedland's leadership among rabbis in smaller Jewish communities, including his role in organizing a recent national conference for rabbis and lay leaders of smaller congregations in the Conservative movement.
