6:30 PM - 7:30 PMSanctuary &

The Temple Sinai Hineini Committee* (Accessibility and Inclusivity) invites you to a Shabbat service to celebrate Jewish Accessibility Awareness Month and to honor Rabbi Sam Trief for becoming Chairperson of Jewish Abilities Atlanta This important organization promotes an inclusive community that celebrates the uniqueness of every person across their lifespan, by providing capacity-building resources to synagogues, camps and other Jewish organizations. As Rabbi Trief takes on this responsibility, she represents Temple Sinai as a leader in our Temple, as well as in the Atlanta Jewish community. We are very proud of her! 

We will also honor the Hineini Committee and our special guest speaker will be Nicole DeWard from Rise Coffee & Tea. Learn more about Rise in this video and more about Nicole in the bio below.

*Hineini is a Biblical expression that best translates to “Here I am”

You may attend our Shabbat service in person or virtually via Vimeo live. Find a how-to guide for Vimeo Live here
