We greet each new child with joy and care.  It is a privilege to welcome your child into our community and the embrace of the Jewish people.  Please be in touch with Rabbi Friedland to plan your child’s meaningful and special day.




Planning a wedding?  Mazel Tov on this wonderful simcha! 

At Sinai Synagogue, we work with you and your family to create a service that symbolizes the uniqueness and beauty of the marriage relationship.  Rabbi Friedland will guide you through the traditions, music and rituals to create a wedding experience that is both authentically Jewish and an inclusive, joyous expression of your love.

Rabbi Friedland is available to offer counseling and guidance at any stage of your relationship, engagement or wedding planning.


Choosing a Jewish Life

We welcome those who seek information about living a Jewish life to explore our community and to feel embraced as they take on the process of becoming a Jew.  Let us be a home for your Jewish journey.

Rabbi Friedland would be thrilled to meet with you and help you chart a course of learning opportunities that lead to living a Jewish life. 


Bnei Mitzvah

“It was a very special moment.  I knew there was no turning back.  I knew I wasn’t just practicing anymore.  This was real.  Wearing the tallit reminded me that G-d was there.”

Allison Rodin describing putting on her tallit on the day of her Bat Mitzvah, 1994

Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, at any age, is an exciting and momentous milestone.  At Sinai Synagogue, we create an inclusive service that highlights the achievements of the student and celebrates their unique qualities and accomplishments.  We will work with you to fashion an uplifting and meaningful experience that brings the entire family closer to the Torah.  Please contact Rabbi Friedland to start the conversation.


End of Life & Mourning

Our Rabbi and staff are here to help your family at these difficult and sensitive times. 

For mourners, whose lives are often turned upside down by death, the traditional practices of mourning can provide structure and comfort.  We are here for you.

Rabbi Friedland is present for congregants and their families as the end of life approaches with hospital visits, guidance, counseling and support.  He will also help you create a respectful service that honors the life and memory of your loved one.
