High Holy Days Volunteer
The High Holy Days Volunteer Opportunities at Temple Sinai
Holy Day Rides
Our Holy Day Rides service arranges for rides to synagogue services during the High Holy Days for those who may not be able to get to synagogue any other way.
If you need a ride or are able to help in any way to fulfill this mitzvah, please register with the Temple Office at 416.487.4161 or email@example.com.
L’dor Vador — Temple Sinai’s Multigenerational Choir
We are very excited to welcome you to another season of singing! Join our multigenerational choir, which fills Temple with song at the new High Holy Days service called Sh’ma Koleinu — Hear Our Voices. Please contact Cantor Katie Oringel at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Join our Group of Ba’alei Teki’a
Would you like to learn to blow shofar? If you are interested in taking part in an extraordinary mitzvah, please e-mail Hayley at email@example.com or call 416.487.4161. Please bring your own shofar.
Ushering in the New Year
Temple Sinai has a long tradition of fulfilling the mitzvah of hachnasat orchim (welcoming guests). We all feel the richness of our community when we come to Temple and are warmly greeted. During the High Holy Days, our ushers enhance our community’s worship experience by providing a welcoming atmosphere to congregants and guests, answering questions, and creating a warm and spiritual environment.
Our kehillah kedoshah needs your help to usher in the new year. Please take a couple of minutes and volunteer to usher for the High Holy Days. Call Risa at 416.487.4161 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and she can schedule a service time that is convenient for you. Volunteer hours will be granted to high school students wishing to participate.
Leading our Community in Prayer
The mitzvah of leading the community in prayer has always had a special place here at Temple. On behalf of Temple Sinai, we wish to extend you this honour in recognition of your leadership and support of our Temple family. Learn more . . .

Saturday, September 5 at 9.00 p.m.
The response to our exciting S’lichot experience has been overwhelming! However, with a larger venue for this year, there is yet space if you wish to join us for this meaningful, moving spiritual experience. Doors will open at 8.15 p.m. so that all have time to find a place before S’lichot begins.
We are excited to learn, laugh, remember, and reflect as we are inspired by our clergy, professional theatre performers from Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company, and of course Colin Mochrie and Debra McGrath. Even if you do not yet have your free tickets, you can still join us.
Contact the Temple office before Shabbat or join us as Shabbat comes to an end Saturday night. Thanks again to the families of Nathan Max Goldman z”l and Pearl Wainstock z”l for their support of this innovative initiative!
