The Brotherhood is one of the fundraising arms of the Temple, supporting our own programs in addition to Bingo and other endeavors of the Fund Raising Committee. We usually plan our programs for the season over the summer months. Our programs usually consist in three or four breakfasts and one or two special features.
We have board meetings on the first Tuesday of each month, starting at 6:30 PM. All are welcome at all of these meetings. The meetings are very informal and we put up a pot of coffee with donuts.
We have planned out our 2019-2020 season. We plan on four “Breakfast and Bingo” events. One each on the 24th of November, one on the 22nd of December, one on the 22nd of March and a final one on the 31 of May.
We annually sponsor the Israeli Scout Show. We book the first Sunday appearance of the scouts in South Florida (always in June) and always have children attend at no charge. As with all our functions, spouses are always welcome. The Brotherhood Shabbat is scheduled for the 21st of February. At this Shabbat, members of the Brotherhood are honored with aliyot. We planning a Brotherhood member only function one evening where we could have desert and drinks and have a card game.
The Brotherhood annually supports the Temple by funding specific need projects that the Temple is unable to fund on its own. This past year, thanks to the fund raising efforts of our Brotherhood (and their wives), we were able to donate an additional $5,000 for refurbishment of the Finkelstein Hall sound system.
The main fundraising function the Brotherhood supports is the Wednesday evening Bingo game held at the temple. Many of us volunteer for the many functions that need manpower.
