Join the Brotherhood
We encourage all men of Beth Chaim to join the Beth Chaim Brotherhood!!! For those of you who are new to Beth Chaim or who haven’t participated in the Brotherhood, it’s a great way to get to know a few more people at Beth Chaim and to get you (and your family) more connected to the community. Any adult male Beth Chaim member may join and participate. Those of us who have been active in the Brotherhood for many years will tell you that Brotherhood is a very meaningful part of our Beth Chaim experience and can be a great source of friendship and support for many years to come.

Brotherhood Activities
Brotherhood activities throughout the year include the annual Winter Getaway at Lake Tahoe, the March Madness pool, the Brotherhood Fantasy Football League, Brotherhood lunches and Brotherhood movie nights (think action flicks). We sponsor an annual Bocce Ball and Dinner night with spouses/partners, which is great fun. We have guest speakers and sometimes arrange other special events such as camping, hiking, and father/child activities. We donate to charitable causes. We buy Kiddush cups for the B’nei Mitzvah class, co-sponsor special Beth Chaim events, help to build the Beth Chaim Sukkah and provide support to the Beth Chaim community in times of need.

UPCOMING BROTHERHOOD EVENTS

Men's Gathering February 21, 7:00 pm 
Home of Jeremy Smith

Theme: What Are The Masks We Wear? What Are The Roles We Have Assumed?

In honor of the upcoming holiday of Purim, we consider what are the roles that have been foisted upon us and what are the masks that we consciously or unconsciously wear in our lives? What would it feel like to cease playing some of these roles? What personas have worn out their welcome in our lives? As we enter 2019, what changes are we prepared to undertake in order to live a more authentic life?

MEN'S GATHERING

Theme: What Are the Masks We Wear? What Are the Roles We Have Assumed?
Place: The Home of Jeremy Smith, 3278 Ensenada Drive, San Ramon, CA 94583

Those who have participated in the Brotherhood "Weekend Away" understand the power of these gatherings. If you have never attended a Beth Chaim Men's Gathering, you might want to come and experience it. Rabbi Dan facilitates this gathering, and no one needs to feel compelled to share a story. Your presence makes this worthwhile. You are invited to bring a friend.  


Events are always being updated - check back often
