Film Society Discussion – “Avalon”

Monday, November 29 @7:30pm-8:30pm

The SinaiFree Film Society will be discussing the feature film "Avalon."  In our Hanukkah film, two quintessentially American holidays, Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July, feature prominently. Based loosely on director Barry Levinson's own family, it explores the themes of Jewish assimilation into American life, through several generations of the Krichinsky clan beginning in the early 20th century. By the '50s, television is new and families are moving to the suburbs. Wallpaper has been the profession of the patriarch, Sam, but his…

Hanukkah/Shabbat Hybrid Celebration

Friday, December 3 @6:30pm-8:30pm

It's our 12th Annual Fred Selsky Fundraising Festival! Hanukkah is about rededication. Historically it marks the rededication of the desecrated temple in Jerusalem during the times of the Maccabees. We name our Hanukkah celebration in Fred Selsky’s honor to rededicate ourselves and to remember Fred’s dedication to our congregation. Fred personified SFS as a "small community with a big heart." He supported and participated in every aspect of synagogue life. We will honor his memory with song, festivities, and light. To continue all…

Torah Study

Saturday, December 4 @10:00am-11:30am
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Saturday, repeating indefinitely

Rabbi Barzilai leads us in study of the week’s Torah portion. In addition to exploring the portion, he shares readings and ideas from Rabbis and scholars. Many of us are beginners, and no prior knowledge is required. All you need is a desire to listen, to think, and to learn. When you are comfortable, we encourage you to jump into the conversation and share your ideas.
