Posted on Friday, August 17, 2018 at 10:50 am

Special August 24 Torah Procession & Kabbalat Service
Since 2003, Congregation Sinai has been serving the Jewish Community of Central Florida. They have now moved to 1200 West Broad Street in nearby Groveland, and will hold a special grand opening Torah procession, Mezuzah placement and a Kabbalat Shabbat service on Friday night, August 24 from 7 to 9 PM. The entire community is invited.
Congregation Sinai provides a warm spiritual environment for observance of Jewish traditions and celebration of our members’ life cycle events. They offer a full and comprehensive education program with an active Sisterhood and Men’s Club. They regularly supply donations of food and supplies for the local schools as well as food and clothing for Puerto Rican and US Virgin Islands relief. While the local Jewish Community attends prayer services and special events, they have opened their doors to the entire community, regardless of faith. They hold ongoing food drives for the needy and interfaith activities to promote understanding among our different cultures. They welcome all with open arms and hearts to their services.
This is one of the few temples with active spiritual leadership here in Central Florida. Sinai has steadily grown to serve over 150 Central Florida members’ from 6 to 96 years old. All members help to pray for each other as a family. Sinai has a very active Sisterhood with special events and annual fashion shows that often host 250 women from across the community. They also host various women’s outreach programs inviting all area churches. Their Men’s Club is very active with monthly movie and pizza nights, charitable programs as well as their annual golf tournament. Most Sinai members live in the Clermont, Minneola and Groveland areas.
Joe and Lynn Goldovitz provide distinctively unique spiritual leadership. This organization serves as a house of prayer, assembly and study in which the spectrum of Jewish expression is cultivated, protected and nurtured. With adult education, bible study groups, bar/bat mitzvah study programs and group tours to Israel; they strive to educate adults and children in Judaism’s rich heritage with contemporary significance, while sharing Jewish culture, rituals, traditions and values. They hold Shabbat Services every Friday Night with Torah readings, Bible & Bagel study workshops, Healing Services; many very creative service events as well as special services for every major Jewish Holiday.
