Temple Beth Shalom Brotherhood is an organization of men who have banded together in friendship, for programs that benefit our Temple, our community, and above all, the growth of the individual so that each may find an opportunity to fulfill his potential as a person.
The Brotherhood sponsors many activities throughout the year.
We begin the year by providing ushers at High Holy Day Services. For many years, the Brotherhood has helped celebrate Hanukah with miraculous plates of latkes for all to enjoy at the Hanukah Party.
Sports are high on the list of activities. The TBS Bowling League is sponsored by the Brotherhood and provides a major non-competitive social opportunity to bowl, enjoy the company of others in the congregation and have fun. In addition, a Golf Tournament is held in the spring. It is one of the major fund-raising projects for Brotherhood activities and the Temple. In the past, Brotherhood has attended hockey games, baseball games, and fishing trips.
From setting up tables and chairs, to directing traffic, and any tasks in between, the Brotherhood assists the Sisterhood in their major Fundraiser, the Annual Food Festival.
We also have had speakers on a wide range of subjects from Health to the Holocaust, to which we invited the entire congregation to attend. This year we contributed funds for a Rabbi from the Israeli Defense Forces to address the congregation.
If you have not as yet joined the Brotherhood, we encourage all of the men affiliated with the congregation to do so and enjoy the opportunities for friendship and service. Attend our events. Make new friends. Help Temple Beth Shalom to be the best that it can be.
We need the participation of all our men if we are to continue to be successful in the future. If you are not a member, we welcome you to meet the members, schmooze, nosh, and become a part of our organization. We have always contributed to the Temple by providing for concrete institutional needs (chairs, security systems, plantings, etc.), and any additional labor or assistance for temple projects. We wish to continue these activities in the future. Try us and you will like us!
Free Latke Party
Our annual Latke Party brings lot of men into the kitchen; peeling potatoes, onions, secret spices, and lots of peanut oil. The result is a full house of kids, moms, dads and grandparents.
We don’t have a lot of fishermen in our ranks, but we sure do enjoy getting out in the sun and the gulf air.
Our bowling league is only 10 games long and our games are only 2 lines…..but then eveyone goes out every which way for brunch. Men and women all participate and we have 8-12 teams every year. And a grand bowling banquet, which is also a brunch.
Brotherhood fund raisers come in all shapes and sizes; we help the sisterhood, we help the Temple, and we do some events like our famous Pasta-Bingo night.
