What is the Temple Emanuel Brotherhood?

The Brotherhood at Temple Emanuel is focused on fully serving the congregation and supporting men throughout different stages of life. Our purpose is to cooperate with the Temple in stimulating Jewish activities, to foster cultural and educational advancement amongst its membership and the Jewish people at large, and to promote through social interaction the spirit of comradeship within its midst.

What the Brotherhood Has to Offer

We offer opportunities to meet the needs of the men in our congregation through programs and events. Some of these include partnership/participation in annual events and activities such as the Shalom Project with a clothing and stuffed toy drive, Dash ballgame outings, Mitzvah Day brunch project, assisting with the Purim carnival, our co-ed softball team (Brotherhood/Sisterhood), poker night, and golf tournament.

There are Brotherhood-sponsored events such as ushering for the High Holy Days, the annual sukkah build, Latke-Palooza (latke cook-off), our annual membership drive, and sponsoring a number of onegs throughout the year. After Passover, we begin our Men of Reform Judaism’s Yellow Candle Program in remembrance of those who perished in the Shoah. We sponsor a Yom HaShoah program at the temple with a candle-lighting ceremony. The Brotherhood also works with the Sisterhood to provide joint events, and partners with Temple Emanuel committees to look for new ways to serve our members’ needs.
