About Men's Club:

Anshai Torah Men's Club is an auxiliary organization of the synagogue whose objective is to provide opportunities for social interaction for our members.  We seek to involve our members in fun and fulfilling activities that will benefit the synagogue and be of service to our community.
We have monthly meetings in the synagogue, usually on the third Sunday of the month, beginning at 9:00 AM.  Watch the synagogue announcements and weekly emails for specific dates.  We serve bagels, muffins, fruit, juice and coffee, and, while we nosh, we have a short business meeting where we discuss upcoming events and new activity ideas.  Many of our meetings also include short programs.


Throughout the year the Men's Club:

  • Holds fun and educational events such as Scotch-Tasting Seder or our annual inaugural Beer Tasting
  • Helps out with High Holiday ushering and handles the construction and subsequent dismantling of the congregation's sukkah
  • Our Sunday afternoon Football in the Sukkah is a great annual event!
  • Fries all of the latkes for the shul's Chanukah celebration
  • Purchases and delivers Yom Ha Shoah candles for the entire congregation
  • Supports the annual Weinberg Family Golf Classic benefiting the Men's Club Scholarship Fund
  • Holds games nights, bike rides, movie nights, and other social activities
