Men's Club

Jewish Guys Doin’ Good, Havin’ Fun!

Can we be Doin’ Good and Havin’ Fun at the same time?  Your Har Shalom Men’s Club thinks so. The Torah tells us to practice Tikun Olam or “fix the world”. Hence we have a commandment to follow. On the other hand, life is precious and we must enjoy it. To address both, the Men’s Club has developed programs and projects in many areas that are designed to help Har Shalom and our community, while allowing us to enjoy one another and make lasting friendships. The Men’s Club is one of over 270 clubs with over 25,000 members in conservative/Masorti synagogues around the world. We are dedicated to involving men in Jewish life through our social, educational, religious and civic activities.

Adult Kids Club

The Adult Kids Club is part of the Men’s Club. We are comprised primarily of guys who are over 50. Adult Kids Club events are open to all Har Shalom men and to guys who are prospective members. For the main part, we have dinners out monthly except for months in which a golf outing is planned. Sometimes we might also go to a movie. If you have ideas for other activities or would like to be on our mail list, please contact us at adultkidsclub@harshalom.org. Participating in these events is just one way that your membership at Har Shalom becomes more meaningful.

Men’s Club Brunch Series

Come enjoy our Monthly Men’s Club Sunday Speaker Brunch series with great food prepared by The Kitchen Boys and great topics by celebrated guests. Join us for a delicious brunch, a chance to schmooze and an exciting program. Buffet opens at 9:15 am; follow by the main program at 10:15 am. Better yet, join the Minyan at 9 am in the chapel and sit at the reserved table afterwards.

Sukkah Kits Project

Building the Har Shalom Sukkah and Selling Home Sukkah Kits. Every year Men’s Club builds the communal Har Shalom Sukkah. It is decorated by the Religious School and ECEC and used for many activities during Sukkot. The Men’s Club builds and provides home Sukkah Kits for Har Shalom members and other in the community. Easily assembled, the home Sukkahs provide a great place for families to celebrate Sukkot at home.

BOYZ Club

This group of Men’s Club members meet monthly to play cards, attend movies and go out with their wives. The group also has a book club that meets regularly. What a great way to get out of the house and social with other Jewish guys in the 30 to 50 plus age bracket.

Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam

Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam community service projects. The clubs support the Jewish community by delivering High Holy Day food packages to homes of Jewish families, leading Shabbat services the Passover Seder at a Senior living facilities and nursing homes.

From these highlights, you can see that the Men’s Club will be very busy this year and in the coming years. We certainly expect to be Doin’ Good and Havin’ Fun! However, in order to succeed, we need your involvement and support. If you are already a member, jump in to help or lead one of our projects or events. Come to our monthly Board meetings, which are open to all members.  If you are not a member, please join in. You’ll make a lot of friends, have a lot of fun and, believe me, you won’t regret it. Contact us at 301 299-7087, ext 411, or by email at MensClub@harshalom.org.
