Brotherhood is Congregation Etz Chaim’s men’s club. We provide service to the congregation by ushering at High Holidays, constructing and deconstructing the sukkah, cooking for the end-of-school-year BBQ, and making financial donations to the congregation as needed. We sponsor annual events including Soup, Bread and Game night, Trivia Bowl, an art auction and a golf outing. We meet one Sunday a month at 9:30 AM, usually in the mutipurpose room at the synagogue, for a lox and bagel brunch, good conversation, and an interesting speaker.
The Brotherhood is sponsoring a Whirly Ball party on February 12th from 9:30 am to 11:30 am at the Whirly Ball location in Lombard on Roosevelt Rd. (http://www.whirlyball.com/game-lombard/). We would be honored to have you join us in a battle for the ages! Lets give them one for the bards to sing of.
