Who are we? Since 1936, our Brotherhood organization has supported The Temple, Congregation B’nai Jehudah community by participating in meaningful activity within the synagogue and our community.
What does the Brotherhood do?
We serve in routine ways, such as ushering at services. We support and provide programs that allow the Congregation to meet, mingle, learn, and enjoy good food. We also offer Sunday morning breakfasts when Religious School is in session. Regardless of how it is manifest through our actions, we endeavor to spread the warmth we find in the Brotherhood throughout the congregation.
Within the Brotherhood, we foster fellowship by working together on tasks we believe in and engaging in group activities. Our activities are designed to entertain, to educate, and most of all, to build connections.
Is that all?
Get connected. Brotherhood is at the heart of our Congregation and provides new members with a warm and welcoming introduction to The Temple, Congregation B’nai Jehudah family. Brotherhood strengthens the bonds that tie us together.
There’s much, much more and we are open to your ideas, too. We would love to hear your thoughts and we welcome your help in making them become reality. Please consider joining us.
What is Shevet Achim? Loosely translated it is ‘Tribe of Brothers”
Shevet Achim the name taken from, “Hinei mah tov umah na’im shevet achim gam yachad-Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity”.
On January 17 a group of Brotherhood young men came together to explore “How will Brotherhood enrich your life- WhatcanBrotherhooddoforyou”.Thisgroupiscomprised of mostly new, mostly younger members of Brotherhood, many with children of various ages. Young is described as less than 50 or close. Thank you to Mort Zevitz for preparing breakfast for the group.
Rabbi Kirzane facilitated the gathering and there was very interesting dialogue, thoughts and ideas. Discussion focused on service to B’nai Jehudah, social activities with Shevet Achim/Brotherhood members, families and community service. All of this took into consideration constraints, obligations and schedules for these young men and their families. There were several very good suggestions and a follow up get together was scheduled. Their 1st activity has been to help prepare and serve at the Brotherhood Breakfast Club bringing new younger presence to that group of dedicated Brotherhood Members.
We invite young men to join in this opportunity to make new friends, spend time with your children/families and to support B’nai Jehudah’s Core Purpose- To Nurture Jewish Meaning, Connection, Continuity.
Participants: Rabbi Kirzane, Dan Hodes, Adam Cohen, Joseph Martin, Michael Weiss, Ben Nathan, Kory Hochler, Aaron Rittmaster, Zach Bassin, Mike Zevitz, Jeff Singer, Gary Rogoff, Steve Bernstein, Loren Ginden and Steve Cohen.
