Har Sinai Hebrew Congregation, founded in 1857 in Trenton, New Jersey, is a Reform Jewish Congregation, affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), serving the greater Delaware Valley.
We are an inclusive congregation welcoming all who wish to learn about Judaism, teach it to their children, and live a Jewish life.
We are dedicated to fulfilling the historic covenant between God and the Jewish People. We seek to infuse the timeless teachings of Torah into our daily lives. Ours is an open, moving and evolving concept of living Judaism.
We seek to provide a sense of community among our members, to enhance Jewish family life and culture, and to promote the practice of Jewish values and mitzvot, social action and social justice in our daily lives, at home, at work, and in our community.
We take pride in our congregational history and longevity which reflects the congregation’s ability to respond to a changing world in creative and constructive ways.
We support the traditional functions of our Synagogue as a House of Assembly, Study, and Worship.
We recognize Israel as a center for Jewish spiritual and cultural life and affirm our link to the land of Israel and its people. As members of World Jewry (K’lal Yisrael), we are dedicated to the well being of Jews everywhere.
