It is said that we stand of the shoulders of giants. The Florida Region of FJMC would not be where it is today if not for the guidance and inspiration of Allan Gottesman.

Allan and his lovely wife Caren enjoy the warm Florida weather

Since moving to south Florida 38 years ago, Allan has always been highly involved in the activities of the local Jewish community. During his time in the sunshine state he’s served as synagogue treasurer, Israel Bond chairman and Golf Committee chairman and on the boards of the Jewish National Fund, Friends of the Israel Defense Forces and Mercaz USA.

The Prince of Purple

A graduate of the world famous Anshei Darom retreat sweat hut, Allan’s long track record with FJMC includes being a Founding Member of the International Kiddush Club. In 2007, Allan received the FJMC’s Ma’asim Tovim award in recognition for his exceptional leadership in the Florida Region of FJMC. Allan’s experience as Men’s Club President and President of the Florida Region of FJMC helped to prepare him for that fateful day in July of 2015 when he became the 42nd International President of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs. Yasher Koach to Allan Gottesman and thank you for everything you have done to advance the cause of Men’s Club and Brotherhood.

Allan Gottesman and his wife Caren are active members of Temple Torat Emet where Allan is a integral part of the Temple Torat Emet Men’s Club; learn more at https://www.templetoratemet.org/mens-club/.
