Brotherhood

brotherhood1

Our Brotherhood is far more than a social club — through Brotherhood, Jewish men find inspiration by participating and being involved in our synagogue while engaging in social issues and supporting our community. We improve the lives of our members, our families, our congregation and our community, and have a great time in the process.

We make a difference by providing educational, cultural, and religious programs, supporting Youth group and Religious School activities,coordinating social action and religious activities, and sponsoring social events where men can come together for camaraderie and support.

Join us at our next monthly meeting (usually on the second Sunday of every month at 9:00 AM) in the Youth Lounge. The meetings provide Temple Emanu-El men with an opportunity to bond, be themselves and simultaneously plan activities that enhance Temple life and our community. Our meetings always include a great breakfast and interesting conversation. Join us at our next meeting for top-quality lox, bagels, juice, coffee and more!

Temple Emanu-El's Brotherhood is an affiliate of the Men of Reform Judaism, a coalition of more 250 affiliated Brotherhoods with 30,000 members across North America. If you are interested in learning more, becoming a member of Brotherhood, or obtaining a schedule of our events, please contact us.
