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).

We mourn the passing of our fellow Board Member and friend, Richard “Dick” Marshall. May his memory be a blessing to us all.
Our November 14th Membership Meeting featured speakers from the Sun City Center & Kings Point HAM Radio Clubs. It was the only time I can remember that ham was permitted in Beth Israel. (Sorry, couldn’t resist that!). Thanks to Bob Goldberg and our own Ed Blecher, we learned a great deal about these clubs, what they do, how they help in disaster relief, the various types of licenses there are and the steps needed to become a licensed HAM radio operator.
Food for this lunch featured the culinary skills of Betty Schare and consisted of turkey breast, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, salad and desserts galore!
As this was also our annual business meeting, we elected or re-elected three men to our Board of Directors.
The joint Sisterhood-Men’s Club Chanukah Party will be held on December 9th at 2PM, immediately following the Congregation’s Annual Meeting at 1PM. We expect a great turnout that day with great food and a lot of fun.
Programs for our December 12th Membership Meeting and December 16th Bagels & Discovery are being finalized. Flyers will be sent out shortly.
