A place of Family and Torah

Our Temple


Our Temple

Temple Sinai: A Reform Judaism synagogue for today.

Welcome to Temple Sinai, where the practice of Reform Judaism is alive and well. You’ll find regular Shabbat and Holiday services, an innovative and growing religious school for kindergarten through 10th grade, an exciting preschool program for children 24 months to five years, a compelling adult education program, and an active Sisterhood and Brotherhood as well as our parent organization, Promise at Sinai, and dynamic programs such as our popular Teen Academy and social groups.

Whether you seek the excitement of social gatherings, music and meeting people, the quiet solitude of private worship, or the guidance to navigate with ritual and meaning all the lifecycle events, you’ll find it at Temple Sinai. Both communal worship and private prayer are a key part of temple life. Know that our clergy and extended staff provide the resources to discover and cultivate a deep and profound understanding of Torah, Judaism, Israel and your own personal spiritual journey. 

It is a place that not only connects you to your Judaism but also to the community: Where families forge lifelong relationships, children grow up together, B’nei Mitzvahs and weddings are celebrated, the inevitable grief of loss is shared, and everyone has the opportunity to honor Jewish traditions and heritage. Where people newly transplanted to the desert reach out to find kindred spirits, and young families and mature congregants alike find a place that offers support, education and a social outlet. 

Singular in its essence and personality, expansive in its numerous educational and enrichment offerings, Temple Sinai seeks to increase awareness and an appreciation for Jewish values as well as the State of Israel. While our home is in the Coachella Valley, we are connected to communities around the world and especially Israel: We are committed to fostering the strong bond we have with Israel as we increase visibility for, and take action to help overcome, the many challenges it faces. 

As a core value of Judaism, we uphold and practice social action (Tikkun Olam). Be it a high profile fundraiser or a small gesture of giving, always we endeavor to bring people together to create lasting change. Opportunities to make the world a better place surround us. From our weekly food deliveries serving those in need (who practice any faith) to our High Holy Days Food Drive, and our adult and young people’s fundraising activities to our annual community-wide Mitzvah Day effort beautifully orchestrated by the Jewish Federation, boundless possibilities to repair the world await our good deeds.
