Sinai Shul / Beis Hamedrash Renovations

$2,295 of $32,000 raised

raised by 6 people in 2 days

Sinai Academy, a junior high and high school offers a sound Jewish and secular education to boys whom otherwise would be in Public School. It is done in a warm and loving environment. The students are made to feel as they are part of one big family; the Sinai family. Because they feel loved and cared for, they thrive and embrace Yidishkeit.

Considering that tuition covers only 15% of Sinai's budget, all the funds raised throughout the year go to operational costs and primary school activities, the Beis Hamedrash interior has been neglected for years. It is time to change that.

In an effort for Sinai students to be able to daven and learn in a comfortable environment, it is imperative that the shul undergo major and long overdue renovations. The shul is located near the lunchroom and is currently being used by Sinai students for davening and learning in their spare time. We are set out to create a proper physical and spiritual atmosphere that is welcoming. 

THIS CAMPAIGN IS FOR GENERAL INTERIOR CONSTRRUCTION (such as floor, walls, ceiling, lighting etc)

Sinai is also looking for sponsors for elements of Kedusha, which can be made in honor of, or in memory of a loved one. These sponsorships will no doubt serve as an enviable and eternal merit and a plaque will be placed on the item that is sponsored.

Please contact Mordechai Blaustein for sponsorship opportunities and to submit inscriptions for your loved ones - (917) 679-1312 

ARON KODESH (new safe) - $12,000

The Aron Kodesh is where the Torah Scrolls are kept. It is situated in front of the shul. The Aron Kodesh is the holiest place in the shul.

Shul Entrance - $7200

When one enters a shul today, he is actually entering an edifice which is compared to the holy temple of yesteryear; a veritable mikdash m’at.

 BIMA - $5,000 

The platform in the center of the shul is referred to as the Bima. It is covered with a special covering to give honor to the Torah.

NER TAMID (eternal light)- $5,000

Ner Tamid is a continuously burning lamp. It serves as symbol of Hashem’s constant and unwavering presence.

CHAZAN’S AMUD - $3600

The Chazan’s amud is located near the Aron Kodesh and it is where the Chazan leads the prayers. At this amud, the Chazan represents the entire congregation before Hashem.

PEROCHES - (2) $2,500 each

Aside from the Torahs being wrapped in individual coverings and locked with the doors of the Aron Kodesh, an extra curtain is added as a sign of modesty and respect for the holy Torahs. An additional covering will be made if there are any non-religious activities taking place in the shul to further protect its holiness.

RABBI’S SHTENDER – (3) $1,000 each

A lectern used by Sinai Rebbeim serves to enhance their davening and connection to Hashem.

MEZUZAH AND CASE- $500

The mezuzah contains parchment and is enclosed in a secure case. Upon the parchment, parts of “Shema Yisroel” are written which expresses our most fundamental belief in Hashem.

 BOOK CASES – (3) $2,500 each

Book cases will be purchased to store hold the siddurim and chumashim that will be used during davening and the many seforim that will be available to Sinai students throughout the day.

TABLES – (6) $1,000 each

The “new shul” will have 6 tables to allow Sinai student’s extra opportunities throughout the day to sit around the tables and learn with their Rabbi or friends.

WALL MOUNTED TZEDAKAH BOXES – $720

The tzedakah boxes in shul give us an opportunity to support Torah and Chesed causes, serving as an added merit for our Prayers.

SILVER YAD (pointer) - $500

A silver pointer is used when reading the Torah to prevent the Torah from being touched with the reader’s fingers. This would avoid smudging the ink on the Torah rendering it “not kosher”

SIDDUR AND CHUMASH (pair) – (40) $120 pair

Special Hebrew English siddurim and chumashim are used by Sinai students to afford them the opportunity to follow along with the davening and Torah reading as well as enriching their understanding and appreciation for Prayer.

SEFORIM (Hebrew and English books) (100) - $50 each

One of the shul renovation’s intended purpose is to have Hebrew English seforim accessible throughout the day so that students can pop in throughout the day (before and after school or during a break) and learn from the wealth of knowledge of Torah on a variety of topics; thereby strengthening their love and appreciation for Torah.
