Men’s Club

The Men’s Club of Beth Israel

The Men’s Club is an arm of Beth Israel. The purpose of this organization is to strengthen Jewish consciousness by cultivating social interaction, encouraging social services, offering religious education, supporting activities that benefit the Congregation and promoting closer fellowship among its members. We welcome Jewish men in the congregation and community at large.

Men’s Club men support the Beth Israel congregation and each other with a variety of spiritual, educational, and social activities:

     * Scheduled monthly meetings and events (Click here for Calendar)

     * Sponsorship of an annual Men’s Club Shabbat service

     * Contributions to Beth Israel operational expenses

     * Hands-on help and funds to augment special temple projects


Annual dues are $18 (Chai).

February 2020

Our January 23rd Membership Meeting featured guest Larry Newman, a Major League aficionado, who filled us in on the amazing story of “Babe Ruth and the Jews.” Lunch consisted of cheese & vegetable lasagna served with salad and garlic bread, all provided by Sharon Privitera.
On January 29th, we co-hosted, along with Ameriprise Financial, our annual financial information seminar that was open to all members of Beth Israel, the Men’s Club, Sisterhood, and their guests. We had a nice turnout, with food catered by Jo-El’s of St. Petersburg.
Our February 12th Membership Meeting will be a change of pace for us—the DVD of Leslie Nielsen’s very funny comedy, Naked Gun 2 ½: The Smell of Fear. Lunch will consist of a choice of sandwiches from Publix accompanied by potato salad and cole slaw.
Completing the month will be a Bagels & Discovery program on February 23rd in which we welcome back the very popular Dr. Susan MacManus. Flyers will go out shortly, and we expect this to be a sell-out.
Stay tuned for more exciting events scheduled for March, including a Day at the Races at Tampa Bay Downs!
In the meantime,
