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 9:45 AM, usually in the mutipurpose room at the synagogue, for a lox and bagel brunch, good conversation, and an interesting speaker.
Brotherhood is a great way for current and new members to connect and get involved in Etz Chaim. Please come and join us and see what we are all about
