Rabbi Pesner, also Senior Vice President of URJ, has been named by Newsweek as one of the most influential rabbis in America. A founder of the Campaign for Youth Engagement as well as Just Congregations, his expertise lies in developing strategies and encouraging action by clergy and lay leaders in the areas of interfaith, economic justice, marriage equality and other human rights.

It's Time for Phase II

A sincere thanks to the families who contributed to our Sinai @ 60 Brick Campaign during Phase I. To date, almost 60 bricks have been donated!
 
After the Phase I campaign, the committee learned that our original patio location for the bricks was cost prohibitive and would disturb the look and feel of our outdoor worship space.   Since then, we searched for the best location for our engraved bricks on the Sinai grounds. 
 
We are thrilled to share our final design and location selection.   The meditative space you see above will create a peaceful environment to dedicate time for contemplation and reflection.  It will be located north of the patio near the edge of the grounds along the "creek" and among the trees.   It will consist of newly planted shrubs, greenery, benches and a custom built patio made up of the engraved bricks.  These bricks will form an enduring, personalized connection with our entire Sinai community.  This project gives our community an opportunity to honor, to remember, to show gratitude for those who we love and hold dear as we celebrate Sinai's 60th anniversary.
 
We just need over 110 bricks to complete this year's campaign and we're over ½ way to our goal.  Let's work to exceed this year's goal as our new space is designed to grow with ongoing and future donations.  To order a brick, please go to Sinai's brick order website at http://congregationsinai.donationbricks.com, select your brick size, create your brick message, print the order and mail it to Sinai along with your donation.  Our goal is to complete Phase II by the May 31, 2015 and schedule the installation during the summer.  For donors seeking to sponsor the benches themselves or support the overall landscaping project, please contact Karen Lancina directly at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
