All men in the Temple Beth Shalom community are automatically members of Brotherhood. Throughout the year, TBS Brotherhood members gather in groups large and small in order to make a meaningful difference in people's lives.
Our members create strong and meaningful friendships through outstanding social programming.
In fact, in a recent survey of our active membership, the number one reason why men get involved and stay involved is the camaraderie amongst the guys.
Our members are a vital part of the Caring Communities of TBS though our service and volunteerism.
We build strong leaders to help guide and inspire our entire Temple community.
Our members deepen their connection to Judaism through engaging programs and activities during the year.
We are involved in important social action and social justice initiatives that significantly help those in need.
We serve our Temple community in a number of ways, including, but not limited to the list below:
- Greeters/Ushers during our weekly Shabbat services
- Greeters/Ushers/Coordinators during our High Holiday services
- Helping to keep our children (and ADULTS) safe in the parking lot by directing traffic, our members who perform this Mizvah are proud members of the SPU (Special Parking Unit)
- Coordinating a special program through which men and women in our community lead minyan services at the shiva homes of our members who lose a member of their family.
- Leading daily and weekly minyans for those who need to say Kaddish for a loved one, or for those who want to connect with each other
- Providing social gatherings for the men of our community throughout the year,
- Exploring our own spirituality at our annual men's retreat in October and through the year.
We invite you to join us in our mission and become part of this caring community!
