Temple Sinai runs a range of education activities for those looking to extend their understanding and knowledge of Judaism, and those just starting out on their journey.
Children and B'nei Mitzvah Learning
Tot Shabbat: a monthly service for the under-fives and their families
Shabbat Kid-dish: a monthly service for children up to B'nei mitzvah age and their families
Temple Sinai provides a conversion programme through the Union for Progressive Judaism for those committed to joining the Jewish faith. Conversion requires a formal in-depth study course, regular attendance at services and consistent Jewish religious practice for at least one to two years prior to conversion.
Women's and Men's groups
The Rosh Chodesh women's group gathers monthly for prayer, text study and nosh. Please contact our Rabbi if you would like to be added to the mailing list.
The men's group meets monthly on the full moon. Please contact the office if you would like to attend.
The Shiur Torah study group meets every Shabbat morning at 9am at the Temple and on Zoom.
Many Temple Sinai members enthusiastically attend and present at LIMMUD NZ, our annual festival of Jewish learning. LIMMUD is a global movement that delivers engaging Jewish education to communities around the world and connects Jews with a shared passion and dedication to learning.
