“Community, being part of a Jewish people, can make a difference in a person’s healing process. Belonging to a group carries with it a sense of mattering, of being someone other than a patient with a diagnosis, a label” Rabi Dayle Friedman
This year, Sinai is supporting 3 charities, which means each one will receive a greater share of the total raised. All three share a focus - strengthening and supporting the Jewish community – Leeds Jewish Welfare Board, Donisthorpe Hall and an initiative led by our own Reform Judaism.

What is social action?
Social action is a core value and is at the heart of Sinai Synagogue. It includes caring for and about Sinai's individual members and the Synagogue itself.
Social action is an aspect of Jewish life in which everyone can participate, and many Sinai members already do.
We encourage campaigning for causes dear to our members and cover a wide range of causes.
