Temple Sha’arey Shalom


Brotherhood is strongly rooted in the honored principles of Jewish manhood: family values, performing mitzvot for our Temple and our community. We are proud to be Sha’arey Shalom’s “strong right arm.”   We are dedicated to providing financial and logistical support to the Temple and its members – and to having fun while we’re doing it.  We raise money and make donations for Temple improvements and events, conduct Shabbat services and host the oneg, usher for Shabbat and High Holiday services and host social activities  including seminars, brunches, movie nights and barbeques.

Brotherhood is a vital auxiliary, providing both monetary and logistical support to the Temple.  Through our fundraising and gift-giving, we have purchased and donated to the Temple various items, including a new sound system, computers and library equipment.  We are very proud to have completed a complete transformation of the Temple’s Bimah.  A handcrafted Torah reading table, a new lectern and a new Torah  holder have changed the look and the way our services are now conducted.  Brotherhood also presents each Bar and Bat Mitzvah with a gift in honor of their achievement.

These are just some of the activities on our calendar throughout the year. Indicative of our programming, our members are dedicated to Tikkun Olam, repair of this world, through active involvement in youth education, adult education, social action and yes, fellowship activities – all of which contribute to the enrichment of our synagogue communities. We strive to make our congregation a warm and caring community.

Brotherhood welcomes new members at any of our meetings and events. We meet on the Third Monday of every month throughout the year, and our meetings are open to all members. We welcome and encourage input as we strive to continually shape the organization to be fully responsive to its members and the congregation. Make a commitment to join Brotherhood and reap the benefits of what we have to offer – you’ll be glad you did!

Membership is open to all the men of our Temple. For more information, contact brotherhood@shaarey.org.
