The Holiday Season Continues!
I hope that everyone had a meaningful holiday season. Typically, by now the Men’s Club has been right in the middle of many of our fall events, but this year as I have explained in previous columns we were not able to do our opening dinner before the holidays and we could not do a steaks in the sukkah program because of the way the holidays (and the football schedule) fell this year. So, as of when I needed to write this letter, we still have been unable to schedule an opening speaker. Therefore, we are finally sending out an opening mailing without an opening speaker.
Men’s Club has a lot of exciting events happening this year. We have already built the sukkah and have our first Israel in Depth breakfast on October 4th (and another one on October 28th). Two programs we are doing for younger families coming up is our annual Erev Thanksgiving program where we are doing a family bingo night and we are doing a young family Chanukah bash in December.
Now that registration is closed, I am also excited to tell you that 19 men from Congregation Beth Shalom are going to Israel next month. We are so excited that Rabbi Melman will be leading our first of what I hope will be a trend of Men’s Club trips to Israel.
We encourage you to come join us at a meeting, at a breakfast, or at one of our upcoming events. If you are interested in getting more involved, please stop me in the building or contact me any time.
