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.  We do not have any events planned as we need a new president for our Men’s Club due to the sudden death of our current president

 

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!
