Men’s Club

The Men’s Club sponsors a variety of events each year.


One of our most popular events is the lox and bagels brunch, held several times each year on Sunday mornings.  Each brunch features a presentation, either by a shul member or outside speaker, on any topic of interest, whether Jewish or secular.  Recent topics have included: personal technology (smartphone apps and other devices); how to trace your Jewish genealogy; growing up Jewish in South Africa; memories of a member’s father making Aliyah to Israel in the 50s; a discussion by a member oncologist on Jewish womens’ risk factor for breast cancer; fiber optics; fracking and many others.  We also have sponsored presentations on Friday nights, after services, such as the recent presentation by pediatrician/author Itzhak Brook on his service as a battalion physician in the Yom Kippur War of 1973.


Other events sponsored by the Mens Club include Poker Nights, at member’s houses; Trivia Nights at local restaurants; and Movie Night, at the shul.


We are always looking for speakers for our brunches and other ideas for events.  Please contact Men’s Club President Dan Bernick at 484-919-1024 or


The Men’s Club also helps with High Holiday preparations, including the outdoor cleanup, book and chair set-up, ushering during the services, and Sukkah set up.


Our meetings are open to all members, regardless of gender, and the community at large.   Please come, we want you to participate!
