January 2022

On behalf of the Men’s Club, I would like to wish you and your family a better, happier, and healthier New Year, this 2022. With prayers and science, let us work on slowing down the coronavirus and its many variants.

My thanks to Rochelle Lafer, Barbara Grossman, and the entire Sisterhood membership for their Zoom presentation for the Sisterhood/Men’s Club Hanukkah party. One of the best parts was the Hanukkah skit featuring Rabbi Carla and some outstanding
members of our congregation.
A special thank you goes to Jeff Beller, our former President, for presenting the Yearly Men’s Club Report at the Temple’s Annual Meeting in December. Jeff’s report highlighted various Zoom presentations of the last year.

On January 26th at 12 noon, the Men’s Club will be presenting an Al Katz Center program entitled: “Miraculous Jewish Military Victories: The Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War.” This Zoom presentation will be open to all Men’s Club and Sisterhood members, as well as the entire Temple membership.

All paid-up members of the Men’s Club are invited to our first (of the season) live, inperson, free luncheon on February 23rd at the SCC Community Association facility. If you are not presently a paid-up member (only $18), we invite you to send a check payable to “Beth Israel Men’s Club” to our Membership VP, Ed Blecher, 308 Crystal
Downs Court, Sun City Center, FL 33573 ASAP in order to be eligible for our paid-up members’ luncheon. Please include your address, email, and phone number.

As Jeff Beller said in his report, “As always, the goal of the Beth Israel Men’s Club is to bring information and knowledge to its members in an atmosphere of Brotherhood and to give back to the Temple.” We will continue to do so.
