Men's Club

Congregation Etz Chaim's Men’s Club is an affiliate of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs, which aims to fulfill the mission of “Involving Jewish Men in Jewish Life”.
Etz Chaim Men’s Club is an active and award-winning chapter with a strong and growing membership who participate in a range of activities which are planned throughout the year. The activities provide valuable services and functions for the congregation. These include participating in and supporting social events that involve other congregants, joint events with other local Men’s Clubs, the Sisterhood, and activities for couples and families alike. We continue to receive Quality Club Awards annually for programs like our joint Yom HaShoah Program with our neighbors the Catholic Church of St. Ann. This program is held each year, alternating locations, between Congregation Etz Chaim and St. Ann’s with seminars in an effort to educate our respective youth.
Each year to commemorate Yom HaShoah, we provide Yellow Candles to all members of Etz Chaim. We lead a Men’s Club Shabbat service, provide gifts to all B’nai Mitzvah, and our signature event of Steak and Scotch in the Sukkah. Our organization provides quality and pertinent programming to help develop and enhance our knowledge and understanding of Conservative Judaism, and provide needed service and help with fundraising for the synagogue. We offer a full calendar of events ranging from our famous Best Breakfast in Town with thought provoking speakers and social action events, to tzedakah for our congregation. We maintain the Memorial Garden and Brick Program, providing a permanent remembrance for departed loved ones.
Members of the Men’s Club contribute to the daily minyan. We are lay leaders at the annual Men’s Club Retreat and sponsor and conduct the annual Men’s Club Shabbat. Annually we conduct the World Wide Wrap teaching our Hebrew School students to put on Tefillin.

Holocaust Memorial Garden Brick Program

A Memorial Garden incorporating artifacts from Treblinka and the Warsaw Ghetto was built at Congregation Etz Chaim in the 1990’s but had since fallen into disrepair. The Etz Chaim Men’s Club, believing that the Garden was a valuable educational resource as well as an ideal location for future Shoah-related programming, decided to “adopt” and renovate it. The Men’s Club continues to support the Garden with the Memorial Brick Program.
A personalized brick in the Memorial Garden is a beautiful, permanent way to remember a loved one. Bricks are engraved with the dedication of your choice and are not exclusively for those who perished in the Holocaust.
