Founded on June 15, 1942, Temple Sinai of Hollywood moved into its first permanent quarters on Hollywood Boulevard in early 1943. In 1946, Rabbi Max Kaufman became the first spiritual leader of Temple Sinai. Seven years later, Rabbi David Shapiro assumed the pulpit, a position he held until 1980, when he became Rabbi Emeritus. Rabbi Randall J. Konigsburg was our spiritual leader from 1990-2006. In 2006, Rabbi Dr. Gideon Goldenholz became the spiritual leader of the Temple Sinai family and continues to serve the local Conservative needs of the community.
In 1994, Temple Sinai moved into its current facility on North 46th Avenue, a campus which includes the Rabbi David Shapiro Sanctuary, Zinn Daily Chapel, Temple Sinai Early Childhood Education Center, Paul B. Anton Religious School, administrative offices, ballroom, and Kiddush lounge. Today, Temple Sinai boasts over 400 families. Its Early Childhood Education Center is among the finest early childhood programs in South Florida and is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
