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).

August 2020

We’re pleased to announce that membership for all currently paid-up members of the Beth Israel Men’s Club has been extended through August 31, 2021 at no additional cost. New members who join during the upcoming year will pay dues at a reduced rate of only $10 through that same date.

The Men’s Club, in conjunction with the Al Katz Center in Bradenton, held a Zoom event at 3:00 pm on June 17th. The topic was Corporate Facilitators of the Holocaust. The program was both informative and successful, with more than 30 congregants participating. A heartfelt thanks to Programming VP Steve Blesofsky for making this happen!
Steve has also arranged with The Al Katz Center for a second Zoom program, the topic this time is American Presidents and the Jews. The date and time will be Monday, August 10th at 1:00 pm, so HOLD THAT DATE! An invitation email with the website information, meeting ID, and password was sent to all members of both the Men’s Club and Sisterhood. As a reminder, a second email will be sent out a day or two before the actual program.
During this very difficult time, your Board has been keeping in touch with our membership to make sure than everyone’s okay.
In the meantime, Shalom and stay safe! I hope to see all of you soon.
