Join our Sinai family
Shalom, and welcome to Sinai Synagogue—an integral part of South Bend's Jewish community since 1932.
Are you under 30?
Sinai offers entry level membership for single, young adults between the ages of 20-30: $100 for first-year membership, or however much you can reasonably afford. Click here to request an application!
Sinai Synagogue is a proud part of the Masorti (Conservative) Movement, a dynamic blend of our inclusive, egalitarian approach and a commitment to Jewish tradition.
We believe that Judaism is a Tree of Life—able to bend, yet with deep roots that touch the human soul and branches that reach out into the world around us. An open, participatory community, we welcome all visitors. Our lively congregation centers around Bet Tefillah (Worship), Bet Midrash (Learning), and Bet Knesset (Community) within our congregation and the broader community.
Please join us—you’ll feel right at home at our weekly community luncheons, immediately following Shabbat morning services. We welcome you to participate in our daily minyans, adult, youth and family educational programs, and all of the programs and simchas that strengthen and unite our Sinai family.
