Beth Torah Men's Club is a synagogue auxiliary whose objective is to provide opportunities for social interaction for its members. We seek to involve ourselves in activities that will benefit the Synagogue, be of service to the community and provide enjoyment to our members and the entire congregation. We are a member of the Southwest Region of Jewish Men's Clubs and the National Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs.
Beth Torah Men's Club invites all new synagogue members to join us at our meetings and activities (first year membership dues are complementary!)
We have a monthly breakfast meeting at the Synagogue. Watch the Beth Torah Family Record for specific dates. Our meeting begins with a minyan service at 9:00 am, with breakfast starting around 9:30 am. We serve a lox and bagel buffet, with juice, coffee, and pastries. After breakfast, we hold a brief business meeting, followed by our featured guest speaker. Our speakers have included sports and media personalities, community, business and religious leaders, political candidates, and experts on important health issues, social concerns, and other topics. Our breakfast program was awarded a "Torch Award" by the National Federation.
In serving the Synagogue, the Men's Club spearheads construction of the Succah each year, participates in the Purim carnival, and conducts a major annual fundraiser. In recent years this has consisted of a Spring Plant Sale, SuperBowl Raffle, a Las Vegas Night Gala, and a "Show Time at the Shul" talent contest. We also help usher during High Holiday services, provide the congregation with Yom Hashoah memorial candles, and conduct a parent-child minyan service in January.
We serve our community in several ways. We are regular participants in the "Holiday Mitzvah Program" where our members serve in local hospitals on December 24-25 to allow the staff time off to spend time with their family & friends. We also conduct a High Holidays community service project, lending our help to those less fortunate than us.
Through out the year, Men's Club sponsors a variety of sports and recreation activites. Annual highlights include a "Games Night" and a Congregation Picnic. You can always find out about our next activity by looking at the Men's Club bulletin board in the synagogue.
Join us at our monthly breakfast meetings and enjoy our famous lox and bagel buffet.
