Brotherhood of Temple Beth-El was one of the founding members of the North American Federation of Temple Brotherhoods early in the 20th century, and the organization is still active today.

Camaraderie, fraternity, and support for Temple Beth-El’s young people are all part and parcel of Brotherhood which offers programs and social events to Brotherhood members and non-members.

Stay tuned as we will soon announce our Guest Speaker at our “Herb Wagner Memorial Breakfast” on April 22nd. For many years, Brotherhood has been sponsoring the Yellow Candle program to commemorate Yom Hashoa in our Religious School.  This year, we will be offering each family of Beth El the opportunity to light a yellow candle to commemorate Yom Hashoa in your home. We will be sending out a letter explaining the program, and a major element is that with each candle purchased, we will make a donation to the “Sandra Bornstein Holocaust Education Center”, on your behalf.  We hope you will participate, and honor those we have lost, as we “Never Forget”.

Mel is a former President of Temple Beth El, a Board Member, and major volunteer for all Brotherhood events and charities. He and a group of men put together a brand new Brotherhood Men’s Sedar last year. His commitment to the Temple is unwavering and steadfast. He also leads the Brotherhood’s committee that awards charity throughout the community. Each year we have been able to donate a minimum of $2500 to local charities.  The Lindenbaum event will take place May 19th 2018.  Also at the event will be the 2018 Installation of Officers, as well as the presentation of our three scholarships to our outstanding Religious School graduates.
