Sunday Morning Bagels & Coffee....
The Men's Club is proud to sponsor bagels on Sunday mornings in the main lobby when there is an event in the building such as Coffee and News from Israel. Be sure to check ComingUp and the TA calendar for these events. Even if you are not attending the event, we encourage parents dropping off their children for Religious School, minyan attendees and anyone else looking for a nosh and a schmooze to join us! Please direct any questions to Rick Kramer.

Yom Hashoah Yellow Candle Program…..
The Yellow Candle™ was conceived in 1981 by members of the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs to help keep alive the memory of the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. Men's Club members and their children package and distribute the candles as both a reminder and a fundraiser.
