Outdoor Chapel and Playground: Connecting to Nature

We are excited to announce some significant enhancements to Temple Sinai’s campus. Thanks to the generosity of Sinai member Lonnie Cooper, we have now opened the Lonnie Cooper Outdoor Chapel, a space that will seamlessly integrate our shared quest for spirituality with nature and the stunning backdrop of Temple Sinai’s beautiful grounds and acreage.

Our new outdoor chapel is conveniently located as an extension of our current courtyard, which was added to Sinai’s campus in 2004 thanks to the generous support of the Berman and Genz families. The chapel is fully ADA-compliant and accommodates flexible seating for up to 240 attendees, offering an incredible setting for worship services, educational and youth experiences, social programs and receptions, life cycle celebrations, and much more. The chapel includes large cantilevered mobile shades for sun protection, a state-of-the-art sound system, live-streaming capabilities, striking aesthetics, and lighting for evening events.

In addition to the outdoor chapel, we are also excited to announce the opening of our new playground, to be known as the Mercaz (The Center). The Mercaz is an ADA-compliant, natural learning space that encourages creative play, community building, personal growth, and Jewish learning in an inspiring outdoor environment. Students are able to explore nature-inspired climbing structures, discover hidden forts, put their imagination to work onstage, cruise around a racetrack, and even experiment with water elements. Additionally, the Mercaz  includes a new enclosed space for infants and toddlers - The Gan (The Garden) – in which to safely explore as well as develop and nurture foundational motor skills.
