Temples & Churches close all the time. Some due to the changing demagraphics, lifestyle, and the cost to maintain a Jewish Temple.

The Temple started around 1948 and the multimillion dollaar building has been paid for.

It's sad for the members who are miostly old. As with this Temple the Jewish holidays will be the last one at Sinai Reform Temple at it's current location.
