Welcome to Temple Sinai
Welcome to Temple Sinai’s website! We hope you find it helpful, whether you are a member of the synagogue or just visiting.
Temple Sinai is a vibrant and welcoming Reform synagogue located in historic downtown Saratoga Springs. We have about 210 families and individual members who come from diverse backgrounds in Jewish practice and traditions.
Our unpretentious and egalitarian community includes interfaith families, families from the LGBT community, young families and seniors. Our members are committed to the study of torah, as well as tikkun olam, tzedakah, and miztvot.
We are particularly proud of our thriving Religious School, which has about 135 students. More than 90 percent of our b’nai mitzvah students remain enrolled in our confirmation program through high school.
Our charismatic rabbis, Linda Motzkin and Jonathan Rubenstein, are a married couple who have served Temple Sinai since their 1986 ordination. Their depth of Jewish knowledge and devotion to torah and mitzvot, their ability and willingness to minister to Jews of all backgrounds and traditions, and their commitment to tikkun olam have made them a beloved and respected part of Temple Sinai and the Saratoga Springs community.
Temple Sinai is committed to the mitzvah of Ahavat ger (loving the stranger) for those not yet connected or integrated into our congregation, as well as Keruv (drawing near all who are far) for the newest temple member to lifelong congregants.
