Bnai Israel Congregation

Men's Club


The Bnai Israel Men's Club was formed in 2003 with the express purpose to foster a sense of brotherhood and friendship for male members of the Congregation.

Our secondary purpose is to support the Congregation in religious, cultural, and social activities as well as fundraising events.

Our annual activities include publishing the Yizkor Book of Remembrance, putting up the Congregation's community Sukkah and hosting a Super Bowl Party.

We encourage new members to get involved, meet the men of Bnai Israel and be part of our strong community. The Men’s Club members usually meet quarterly for a Sunday breakfast.

Men's Club Membership News, 2022

The past two years have been full of challenges and hardships. The pandemic hit our Synagogue with canceled in-person services and meetings limiting Men's Club activities. Our 2022 Men's Club Shabbat has yet to be scheduled. Sadly, our long-time President Efraim Jaronowski passed away.

Despite the pandemic, we published the Yizkor Book of Remembrance for 2020 and 2021. Partly due to the pandemic, along with other factors, we are changing our annual membership period back to the secular calendar year.

To encourage membership and participation this year, while anticipating limited in-person activities, we are waiving the 2022 dues. Anyone who paid 2021-2022 dues will have the amount credited towards their 2023 membership.

We are proposing four officer positions for the club (president, vice president for synagogue-related activities, vice president for social events, and treasurer). When our first meeting is scheduled, anyone attending will be eligible to vote.

For more information, please contact Stan Prushik (acting President) at 516-404-4200 or Shai Abisch (Treasurer) at 914-582-8673.

Join Now

It's time to renew or join the Men's Club for 2022. Just send an email with subject BIMC 2022 to Stan at and cc: Shai at . Indicate whether you want to be considered for an officer position.
