Hi! And welcome to the Brotherhood page of the Temple Shalom website. If you’re new to Temple or unfamiliar with the Brotherhood, let me offer a glimpse into who we are and what we do.
Brotherhood plays a vital and crucial role in Temple Shalom. We raise and provide funds, create and participate in social functions, and supply “man power” for jobs around the Temple.
In recent years, we have provided funds to purchase a new furnace and new folding chairs, and much needed repair work in and around the Temple. Our social functions are successful and fun, and include a Seder, Comedy Night, Road Rally, golf outings, bicycle touring, white water rafting, deep sea fishing and attending Devils hockey games. Brotherhood offers our members the chance to volunteer and usher at the High Holy Day services, build the Temple Sukkah, run the annual blood drive, and participate in Habitat for Humanity builds.
But most important of all we have created a friendly, inviting and meaningful place for men to assemble and be together. Enduring friendships form and continue.
There is a monthly Brotherhood breakfast where we serve bagels, lox, cream cheese, and other gourmet delights. At each breakfast we have interesting and provocative speakers. The $45 annual Brotherhood dues are well worth the breakfasts alone!
And here’s a tip: First time Brotherhood members and male college undergraduates are free!
We are all looking forward to a great year ahead, and we want you to join us!
