Keeping Up with Brotherhood

The Temple Beth El Brotherhood are the guys who help around TBE. Come to a meeting and meet your fellow congregants. Come with a plan for a project or a get together and let’s make it happen.  Join a temple and your kids will be Jewish…participate and your grandkids will be Jewish.

The first Sunday of every month we have luncheons at 12:30 p.m. with bagels and all the fixings and a speaker; our December meeting featured a presentation by Burt Masnick on the Jew who won WWI for the Allies. The January 7th meeting was cancelled due to weather; the February 4th presentation by Mitch Kittenplan will be a Remembrance of the Year 1968.  Brotherhood’s ROMEO (Retired Old Men Eating Out) group continues to meet in person over lunch at TBE and off campus twice a month on Mondays from noon till about 1:30 p.m.  Dates to be announced.

Let’s thank the Brotherhood members who helped out at the Chanukah Bash: on the dreidel table, Arthur Mont and Ian Weitz; in the kitchen, Barry Schwalb and Harley Kudler; and running security, Mark Goldman and Mike Widawsky.  Thank you to our Brotherhood Tech Team Members Evan Schneider and Jason Gillet.  Lastly, thank you to TBE Beautification Committee Chair and Brotherhood member Barry Schwalb, who did a bit of painting to the area around the front entrance.  To stay informed of our activities, email Mike at to get on the Brotherhood mailing list.
