What is Men’s Club or Brotherhood Shabbat?
Men’s Club or Brotherhood Shabbat is an effective way to raise visibility of your Men’s Club and highlight the participation of your Brotherhood in the religious and social fabric of your synagogue. It is a chance for your Men’s Club members to lead and participate in any or all aspects of the Shabbat service(s). It is a golden opportunity for your Brotherhood to connect, mobilize and re-energize its active membership base, as well as to engage inactive members who do not frequently participate by giving them an honor and/or a role in planning your event.
There are roles for every member of your Men’s Club or Brotherhood regardless of their level of observance; whether in Hebrew or English, in poetry or song, spoken word or non-speaking. In partnership with your Clergy, Men’s Club or Brotherhood Shabbat is a time for your members to take ownership of any or all aspects of the Shabbat service, whether Friday night, Shabbat morning, Ma’ariv, Havdalah or all of the above. Men’s Club or Brotherhood Shabbat weekend is an ideal time to host a Sunday morning Men’s Club or Brotherhood breakfast meeting and program / speaker to engage even more current and prospective members. Grow your club – Embrace Shabbat.
