Located in the historical district of downtown Saratoga Springs New York, Temple Sinai is a Reform synagogue that began in the early 1960's as a study group of a dozen families. Their love of learning nurtured a growing cadre of interested individuals and, in 1965, Temple Sinai was established as Saratoga's Reform synagogue.
Since that time, the congregation has grown to include more than 210 families and individual members representing a diversity of life styles, professions and religious observances, as well as an ever-widening geographic locale. Members of interfaith families, the LGBT community, young families and seniors all feel welcome and at home here. Our congregation combines the benefits of both smaller and larger synagogues with its friendly, warm atmosphere, and programs that seek to meet the needs of the members as well as of the larger Jewish community.
Our rabbis, Linda Motzkin and Jonathan Rubenstein, have served as our spiritual leaders since their 1986 ordination. Both are skilled teachers and counselors and are active in local community and interfaith efforts.
