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).

This is the time of year when the Men’s Club Board takes a well-earned break but, nevertheless, prepares for the fall season when we’ll resume our programming with a Membership Meeting on October 17th and a Bagels & Discovery on October 28th. Programs for these events will be announced as plans are finalized.
Dues notices for 2018-19 have been sent out along with a calendar of dates for future meetings and events. At this time we’re asking all current and potential new members to complete an application and return it along with their checks. This is to make sure that the information the Men’s Club has in its files is up to date.
The list for High Holy Days ushering has been finalized and we’d like to thank all of those men and women who’ve volunteered to take part. Thanks, too, to Executive Vice President Gil Daniels for chairing this very important committee.
We’re looking for a volunteer to step-up to our Board and take on the duties of Recording Secretary. The term of office will commence with our November 14th paid-up Membership Meeting and extend for a period of two years. Please let me know if you’d like to join us or if you have any questions about this position.
In the meantime, we wish everyone a wonderful, safe & pleasant summer.
