Brotherhood is a vibrant organization for the men of our congregation, combining service to our temple, our congregants, and the community-at-large with a large dose of fellowship.

As an independent arm of the Congregation, the men of Brotherhood enjoy the freedom to participate in an eclectic array of programs. Our steadfast endeavors range hand delivering “Yom HaShoah” candles, providing Thanksgiving meals, a monthly card game and running trips to sporting events.

Brotherhood is committed to remaining a dynamic force supporting our temple. We welcome your ideas for new, exciting projects we can implement alongside the tried-and-true. Talk with us at our next meeting; e-mail Steve Rigefsky for information.
