Temple Sinai’s “Sinai Soirée in Slippers”


The spirit of Sinai was brought into the homes of congregants and friends for the celebration of “Sinai Soirée in Slippers.”

Over 185 gourmet meals were delivered by volunteers to more than 92 participants’ homes for a safe and comfortable experience. Though many donned their favorite slippers for the occasion, some guests took it upon themselves to bring out the china and crystal for dining!

The program allowed participants to dine together on Zoom, as well as advertise in the Soirée Booklet, contribute to the Temple Sinai Wish List, make donations, bid on auction items and try their luck on the raffle. Rabbi Sherman announced Sue Singer as the lucky winner of a pair of gold and diamond earrings.

Elizabeth Brodt and Tamie Bressler served as Co-Chairs and worked alongside Committee Member Ellen Cohen and Executive Director Liz Yager.

Temple Sinai looks forward to the next occasion when the congregation can celebrate safely together: “Next Year at Temple Sinai, Next Year with the whole mishpacha!”
