Rabbi Daniel Sherman

I hope that everyone is enjoying the summer so far – and finding ways to stay cool and dry.  Here at Temple, we are so excited to welcome Cantor Rebecca Garfein and her family to Temple Sinai and to New Orleans.

We enjoyed a wonderful first Shabbat of July last week.  It was so nice to welcome everyone back home to Temple Sinai for our first Summer Union Shabbat Services.  It was also Cantor Garfein’s first Shabbat with us.  We had an energetic and welcoming atmosphere, and I think everyone enjoyed being together.  A reminder: we are hosting Shabbat Services throughout July.  Friday Evenings begin at 6:00pm with our Shabbat Shalom Nosh reception in the auditorium, followed by services in the sanctuary at 6:30pm.  On Saturday mornings, we begin with Torah Study in the library at 9:15am, followed by our Shabbat Morning Service at 10:30am in the chapel.

I really hope that you will plan on joining us for Shabbat Services throughout July.  It is a great opportunity to come together, visit, and welcome Cantor Garfein to our community.  Summer Union Services will continue in August at Touro Synagogue.

I also want to remind everyone that we have begun preparing for the upcoming school year by collecting school supplies for students and schools in need.  Please drop items off in the collection bin in the lobby – let’s all try to support this fantastic and important Sinai Tzedek Project.
