Har Sinai Temple began nearly 160 years ago with the formation of the Har Sinai Cemetery Association in 1857 in Trenton, New Jersey. The Cemetery Committee maintains Ewing and Greenwood cemeteries and oversees the selling of plots in Har Sinai areas of cemeteries.
Library and Archives
Rita A. Allen, Chair
With advice from Rabbi Pollack and Educational Director, Magda Reyes, the Library and Archive Committee selects and purchases books for our Library collection. Committee members classify and catalog these books and process library materials, and locate books for our teachers, students, and congregants. Library and Archives are always looking for new members to join the committee.
Greg Rapport, President
The Men’s Club at Har Sinai belongs to the entire congregation. It embodies the spirit of our Temple and its congregants. Together, we participate in events that enhance our Temple, the children in our religious school, our community, and ourselves. Men’s Club is designed to evolve as needs and personal tastes change. It is for that reason we welcome all new participants and all new ideas for how we can make our Club better reflect the feelings of each successive generation as they bring their families to our Temple. The Men’s Club at Har Sinai is looking forward to another great year starting this September as we kick-off the Religious School year with one of our famous barbecues. And that’s just where the fun begins.

Har Sinai Sisterhood embodies the heart and souwl of our Temple. Through the bonds of “sisterhood,” we bring women together as a core to strengthen our Jewish identity. At this time, our primary goal is to generate a strong and spiritual community where you feel welcomed, empowered, and connected to our Temple, to women in our Sisterhood, and to Judaism. Our events and purposes are multifold. We support the activities and goals of the Temple and the Jewish people, as we develop spiritually, intellectually, culturally, and socially. Most of all, we have fun as we learn and grow together! During our “Red Tents on Baldpate Mountain,” we celebrate Shabbat on a mountain top. At our “Rosh Chodesh” events, we discuss books and Torah, and enjoy cultural activities. Through our yearly “Retreats” and “Women’s Seders,” we renew and rejoice together. Plus, through fundraising and social action activities, we support and give back to our community.
Join us, as we connect, celebrate, worship, and party together!
