Men's Club Announces Our Man and Youth of the Year


Each year we honor a member of our Club who goes above and beyond in helping make our Men’s Club one of the finest in the country with our Man of the Year Award.   We also honor an outstanding young member of our congregation with the Youth of the Year Award.   Please help us honor our Man of the Year, Dan Sher, and our Youth of the Year, Bari Sigal, on March 19th at 12:00 pm, at the Midwest Federation’s Man & Youth of the Year Luncheon at North Shore Suburban Beth El, 1175 Sheridan Rd, Highland Park, IL.  The afternoon starts with a silent auction at 1:00 pm followed by lunch and the awards ceremony.


Dan has served both the Men’s Club and Congregation Beth Shalom with unparalleled dedication.  He is currently our Executive Vice President and will be our incoming President for 2017-2019.  Dan has also served in various other positions on our Executive Board including Vice President of House Special Events, Vice President of Programming and Vice President of Ways & Means.  Largely due to Dan’s efforts, our Men’s Club continues to be one of the most accomplished Men’s Club in the entire FJMC.


Bari is a senior at Stevenson High School. This is her fourth year on the CBS USY Executive Board, and has served as President, Membership Kadima Vice President, and a Freshman Representative. Bari is also very involved in the CHUSY region, being the current Membership Kadima Vice President for the region, a tri-chair for Midwinter and a co-chair for 8th Grade Shabbaton last year. She is also involved internationally, participating in USY on Wheels in 2014, USY Eastern Europe Israel Pilgrimage in 2015, and DREAM USY this past summer.


Help us honor them with your presence at the event by placing an ad in the ad book.

Please also note that on February 8th we have our World Wide WrapSpiritually enlighten your Super Bowl Sunday as we share the experience of the mitzvah of laying tefillin with your fellow congregants along with tens of thousands of people around the world on this special communal event.  We follow this up with our fabulous Men's Club breakfast.


We also have two great programs for young families, and the young at heart, coming up.  On February 12th, please join us for a Wolves Game as the Chicago Wolves take on the San Antonio Rampage.  The cost is only $18 per person.  On February 26th, please join us for breakfast as Chef Laura Frankel teaches us how to cook for the holidays with an emphasis on Pesach.


Additionally, it's LOX BOX TIMEMarch 5th is the date. Orders are due by February 28th!  Order early and order often.  Order for a friend, order for a family member, contribute boxes to the Ark and CJE and order for yourself. Please see the order form in this Bulletin and online through our website


I hope to see all of you at our upcoming events.
