Our annual activities include publishing the Yizkor Book of Remembrance, hosting the Labor Day Weekend BBQ/Cookout, putting up the Congregation's community Sukkah and hosting a Friday Night Dinner in the Sukkah. We also plan a member sponsored Super Bowl Party. 

We encourage new members to get involved, meet the men of B'nai Israel and be part of our strong community. The Men’s Club members usually meet quarterly for a Sunday breakfast/brunch meeting and periodically bring in guest speakers to enlighten us on topics of mutual interest.

B'nai Israel Congregation

Men's Club

 

The B'nai Israel Men's Club was formed in 2003. Our mission is to foster a sense of brotherhood and friendship for male members of the Congregation and to support the Congregation in religious, cultural, and social activities as well as fundraising events. Additionally, we look outside our internal community for volunteering opportunities that benefit those less fortunate.

B'nai Israel Men's Club Facts in the Last Year 2023 and Plans Going Forward for 2024-5

This year in 2023 we currently have 41 paid members and hope to grow our membership for the 2024-5 period. Membership dues will be collected for the period Jan 2024-June 2025 ($54 for 18 mos.) as we adjust to the new 12 month fiscal of July-June in place of the calendar year. We've extended our membership to the non-Jewish spouses of our BIC members and to Jewish non-BIC members.

We've discussed projected calendar events and activities that we want to continue with and new ones we would like to implement. We purchased additional sound equipment to enhance the High Holy Day experience and to provide portable sound capability for outdoor events. We fortified the existing sukkah structure this year and will consider replacing it all together once we find donors interested in sponsoring the effort.

We will continue having guest speakers at future Breakfast/Brunch Meetings.  We have and will schedule periodic "Dine Outs" at local restaurants or sports events to further enhance our social interaction.

We will join forces with Sisterhood to sponsor various activities and run joint Men's Club activities with Temple of Israel (TOI MC).  We welcome volunteer opportunities to further Tikun Olam (Repairing the World).

We recently brought back the Israel Scouts this past July and will want to make this an annual joint event with TOI and UJA. We will keep you posted as this coming year may be in question.

Lastly, we have purchased a large 85" Smart TV and rolling stand for better visible capability of presentations for both the BIC community and our school. We will look to donated to other causes that will  benefit our synagogue and outer community.
