Welcome to the The Men's Club page. The Men's Club welcomes men of all ages for social and educational events. Social events include dinners out, scotch tasting, visits to brew-pubs, and more. We build the Sukkah. We sponsor many key events for the Temple community such as the Congregational breakfast featuring speakers on a variety of topics from men's health, finances and current events; the Yom HaShoah Holocaust Memorial Candle program; and the Dessert + Discussion Speaker Series. We conduct many social events during the year, including bike rides, card nights, dinners and family events. Members have greatly enjoyed our moderated discussion program, Hearing Men'sVoices. And there's much more…
We enthusiastically welcome new members! A complimentary membership is extended to all new Temple members.
