Men's Club Activities


Israel Pilgrimage Scholarship Fact Sheet 2023.

Men’s Club is devoted to educating our youth about Israel. The Men’s Club Israel Pilgrimage Scholarship Program provides scholarships for Israel experiences for our teens. Emphasis is on trips sponsored by the Conservative Movement and Jewish day schools.  Over 100 of our teens have been scholarship recipients in the past 30 years. Herb Quint z"l provided the idea for the program, and a bequest from Robert Lainof enabled the program to become self-sustaining over time. Teens or their parents should contact Mike Scheinberg or Elliot Parkin for more information.


Sunday morning brunch meetings feature guest speakers on a wide variety of subjects to feed the mind and a breakfast buffet to feed the body. Men’s Club sponsors dinners, pub socials, sports events, historical tours, and hikes. Men’s Club provides grill masters for congregation barbecues and caters other family events. We’ve danced, bowled, eaten pizza, brewed beer, watched movies, fished, and had a great time just being with synagogue friends.


The Men’s Club provides ushers for High Holiday services and erects the sukkah. We also honor all B’nai Mitzvah with the special gift of an Etz Hayim Humash. Our annual Men’s Club Shabbat weekend features a blend of religious and special events at the synagogue. We devote one of our Sunday brunches to Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs’ (FJMC) Worldwide Wrap, a program that encourages participation in the mitzvah of Tefillin.


Men’s Club participates in the FJMC Yellow Candle program that remembers the Holocaust through the distribution of Yahrzeit candles prior to Yom HaShoah. The program has supported donations to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Ed and Charlene Schiff Holocaust Educational Fund, and the Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care.
