Sinai Teen Programs
Temple Sinai offers eighth grade and high school students a unique study program designed to be flexible, keep students connected, and deepen their Jewish heritage and identity. We have many opportunities to be involved.  Students are welcome to sign up for one or more of the following:
Sinai Teens- This program meets approximately once a month for discussion with the Rabbi and once a month for a community service project. Discussions will be more sophisticated than what they received in earlier grades, involving current events, Jewish learning and often connecting with the Jewish holiday of the month. The community service projects will either be with the Sinai Teen group exclusively (such as serving food to the hungry) or as part of a team at a wider community event (such as participating in Boston’s Winter Walk). For example, our first community service project of the year will be a Reverse Tashlich on the Second Day of Rosh Hashanah - instead of throwing our sins into the water like we do on the first day, we will clean up a park and get the sins out! Students can either register for both the classes and the community service projects for the year or just the community service projects a la carte. Each class and project stands on its own, so if students miss one or more, there is no obstacle coming to the next.
Mitzvah Makers-  Mitzvah Makers is a hands-on volunteer program that has two opportunities for students to give back to their community.  They can choose to sign up for one or both -- Cooking for MainSpring at Temple Sinai & Volunteering at Brightview Assisted Living in Canton.  Brightview is an intergenerational program that meets at least once monthly on Mondays from 7:00-8:00 p.m. for activities with the residents.  Teens facilitate the programs which have included trivia, cooking, ballroom dancing and more.  MainSpring meets once monthly on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the temple kitchen to cook meals for Father Bill's & MainSpring House in Brockton.  
TASTY – This track is the high school youth group that meets most Wednesdays for an hour at 5:30 p.m. in the Youth Lounge. The Temple Sinai group is an active group that plans and participates in local activities as well as at a regional level (NFTY). Students socialize over pizza, help out with the Temple Sinai blood drive and Purim Carnival, and engage in social action projects. Regional NFTY events are also a big draw to expand their Jewish social circle.
If you have any questions or would like more information about TASTY, contact the Temple office at cshore@temple-sinai.com.

Annual Trip- Each year, Temple Sinai offers at least one trip to deepen a teen’s experience of what it means to be a Jewish American. Two trips regularly offered include the Religious Action Center’s L’Taken Seminar in Washington, DC, and a trip to the South to visit Atlanta and Montgomery on a Civil Rights Tour. These trips will have several meetings to prepare for the journey and then go for four days. Scholarship money is available to make these transformative opportunities available to all students.
If you are interested in joining any of our Religious School High School programs, please contact our Director of Education, Geri Segel.
