Keeping Up with the Brotherhood

The Temple Beth El Brotherhood are the guys who help around TBE, who listen to your stories and complaints and are genuinely interested. Come to a meeting and find out.

In January, our first Sunday Luncheon over bagels and lox doubled as a steering committee meeting.  In February, we had a presentation by Mitch Kittenplan entitled “Remembrance of the Year 1968”. In March, we had a meeting for Brotherhood event planning. Coming up in April: speaker Rob Seiler on Mental Health: keep an eye out for more details.

Upcoming events include the events of this month (below) and a spring whiskey tasting event, the summer outdoor cocktail party, pastrami tastings, attending a Yankees farm team game and a Long Island Ducks game. If you’ve got ideas or a plan for an event, Brotherhood would like to hear it.

March’s activities included: an Islander’s Game on Saturday, March 16th, with discount tickets and event courtesy of Jeff Rosen, the “Heberian” meeting at Finnegan’s on Monday, March 18th celebrating St. Patrick’s Day over drinks and great finger foods, with discount and event courtesy of David Gordon. Both events are to be repeated so sign on for a good time (and at a discount)!

Brotherhood’s ROMEO wing – Retired Old Men Eating Out – continues to meet in person at the temple and off campus on certain Mondays from 12:00 until about 1:30 p.m. over lunch.  Dates and times are announced.

Our Beautification Committee President Barry Schwalb made some repairs to the doors to the Social Hall with the Sanctuary door next on his list.  V.P. Ian is working on the Library flooring.
