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).

June, July, 2019

Our last General Meeting of the season took place on May 15th with our own Steve Blesofsky imparting his expertise in diagnosing the signs & symptoms of addiction; DUI, a $10K fine for the first conviction; and giving us a basic knowledge of several applicable laws that could save us time, money & aggravation.

Our July 24th outing to Tropicana Field to see a Rays- Bosox matinee is nearly sold out. We’re looking forward to a great game between two top teams!

There are currently no Board Meetings scheduled for the summer but they’ll resume on September 4th at our new time – Wednesdays at 10AM. In the meantime, plans are going forward with obtaining speakers for fall and winter events, both Membership Meetings and Bagels & Discovery.

With regard to the latter, we’re excited to welcome in October, Marden David Paru who will enlighten us on the mysteries of Kabbalah and in December we’ll welcome back Dr. Steven Derfler on a topic to be determined. Both programs should be sell-outs! Details will follow.

So, in the meantime, we wish everyone a good, safe and healthy summer and we’ll see you all before the High Holy Days.
