Retreats 2014/2015

We are very excited to present you with the retreat calendar for 2014-2015. The education team at Temple Sinai strongly believes in the power and importance of these experiences. Our goals for your children are to provide them with a unique opportunity to be with other Jewish youth and their Temple Sinai family. Additionally, a retreat is the perfect opportunity to unplug for the weekend and to live in the moment. They happen once during the year for each grade, so please mark the date in your calendars now and make them a priority. We hope to share these wonderful experiences with you and your child!


For ALL Sinai Members- Public, Private, Day or any other school students you can think of…
