Join Brotherhood Now

Our Brotherhood is all about enjoying fellowship, having a good time, and participating in our Jewish community. This is not just another committee, but an opportunity to connect with other Jewish men and to talk about issues important to men: marriage, children, health, finance, cars and sports.... Admittedly, we really like talking cars and sports. The Brotherhood is self-powered, not financed by the temple, and is a unique group of friends.

We meet the second Thursday of each month at the temple in Room 202/203. Meetings are casual and purposeful and open to all members. We always enjoy snacks and thirst-quenchers after we complete our meeting agenda.
