A warm and friendly Reform congregation where all are welcome!
Temple Sinai of Massapequa, a member of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and the only Reform synagogue in Massapequa, is a warm and friendly, all inclusive congregation where all are welcome. Our members and friends have created a friendly community where all participate and commit to the future of Temple Sinai.
Through membership and participation in our community everyone has the opportunity to partake in worship, adult education, religious school, volunteering, hosting a simcha, and so much more:
Connect: see old friends and make new friends;
Engage: connecting with our synagogue and neighborhood;
Celebrate: observe Shabbat and Holidays.
Please see the links on the left for detailed information about Temple Sinai of Massapequa.

How can you support Temple Sinai?
Winter Warmers: Hat, Scarf & Glove Drive
Temple Sinai is collecting new hats, gloves & scarves to be donated to those who need help keeping warm this winter. Partnering with FEGS of Long Island we will ensure the "warmers" get to families who are in need. Please bring your new donation to the Temple Fridays before worship &/or Sunday when religious school is in session.
In addition, you can send a $18 contribution to Temple Sinai (memo: winter warmers) and a set will be donated in your honor.
Help us filfill the commandment of "tzdekah" - of doing justice for others.
We will be collecting "winter warmers" until 14 December.
