Welcome to Our Temple

Temple Sinai Sarasota Florida:

A vibrant Reform Congregation and culturally diverse community that provides a spiritual home in a warm and welcoming environment.  

We strive to raise spirituality by bringing meaning to our modern lives through the lens of ancient traditions.

Our Community 

We cherish the friendships made and developed through our active experiences in temple life. We embrace diversity in our membership and offer a meaningful life rooted in Judaism and social advocacy. We are a community of warmth and awareness where every individual matters. Our membership’s size and varied backgrounds, experiences and viewpoints are a foundational strength, providing opportunities for meaningful connections for everyone. 

Our Passion 

We pride ourselves on our joyous Shabbat Services where our worship features inspirational liturgy and uplifting music.  We value our part as a Jewish voice in our community, our country and the world. Our robust curriculum of lifelong learning opportunities — to study, learn and grow; our tradition of philanthropy; and the fullness of our religious and cultural offerings all reflect how we celebrate Judaism. 

Our Commitment 

We invite each temple member to engage actively in the dynamic life of our synagogue and thereby grow spiritually through prayer and music, intellectually through education, and morally through righteous action. Members are encouraged to join a community of faith, commitment and hope. We, as Jews, are commanded to pursue justice, and to participate in Tikkun Olam, “Repairing the World.”

Our Legacy

Our founding families shared a common dream to build a culturally abundant and caring Reform Jewish Congregation in Sarasota, Florida. Today, we continue to build upon their legacy of warmth and the timeless values of Jewish tradition as we strive toward a more just, ethical and compassionate world. We commit our spiritual, intellectual, physical and financial resources to strengthening our community today for a vital tomorrow.
