Temple Sinai of Sarasota is a cutting-edge Reform congregation.

There are over a hundred Synagogues, Men’s Clubs and Brotherhoods spread across the State of Florida and each one is unique. Today we will take you on a trip to beautiful Sarasota on Florida’s Gulf Coast and shine a spotlight on the Men’s Club of Temple Sinai.

Temple Sinai of Sarasota is a cutting-edge Reform congregation celebrating Jewish connections. Their approach to Reform Judaism is rooted in maintaining the traditions of the Jewish faith, while discovering ways to make them meaningful today for all people, creating an inspiring experience that is uplifting, comforting and engaging.

The Men’s Club of Temple Sinai hosts activities that foster spirituality, lifelong learning, charitable outreach and social action while promoting reverence for and celebration of Jewish life. Co-Presidents Chester “Pearl” Perlinski, Howard Polivy and the entire Sinai Men’s Club Board invite you to join them on Sunday October 9 when they assemble to erect the Temple Sinai community sukkah and dine on the finest bagels Sarasota has to offer, followed by a Sukkot Luncheon on Monday October 10 cosponsored by the Sinai Men’s Club and Women of Sinai.

On Thursday October 27, Sinai Men’s Club will host “Live Schmooze“, a chance to schmooze and break bread with your SMC pals. Save the date – Sunday October 30 – for the Men’s Club’s annual blood drive; the Blood mobile will be on site to accept your blood donations.

Looking ahead, on Friday November 11 the Sinai Men’s Club will lead a special Veteran’s Day / Erev Shabbat service honoring those who have bravely served. On Thursday December 8th, all Men’s Club members are invited to a paid-up membership dinner. Men’s Club will start 2023 with a “Lunch and Learn” program on January 10, and save the dates March 19 and May 14 for a delicious breakfast and engaging guest speaker.
