Who We Are

Small Men's Club Logo Who We Are

You're already a part of Men's Club, so why not join in some of the activities that made us the ONLY Men's Club in the Southeast to receive the FJMC Quality Club Award from our national organization - the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs. We also received the prestigious FJMC Gold Tourch Award for our Yom Ha-Shoah program, held in conjunction with our neighbors at St. Ann's Catholic Church.

A Special Men's Club Project. . . . .
Men's Club has undertaken the rejuvenation of our synagogue's beautiful Holocaust Memorial Garden, including the introduction of a dramatic structure to add beauty and grace to this special place of remembrance and solitude.

Inspiring religious services
Educational, social, and cultural activities, serving multi-generational needs
A caring community that supports each other through both joyful and challenging life cycle events
Connections with the broader community and opportunities for Tikkun Olam...


Our intention, in all activities, is to provide an environment of warmth and an opportunity for personal growth. We celebrate together, we pray together, and we learn together, making Etz Chaim truly a home away from home.
