Florida Region FJMC President Blake Lenett wants YOU to join the CBS Brotherhood

The sunshine state is blessed to have dozens of dynamic Jewish Men’s Clubs and Brotherhoods and the Congregation Beth Shalom (CBS) Brotherhood of Clearwater is one of the shining jewels of Pinellas County. The CBS Brotherhood also has the distinction of being the home club of Florida Region FJMC President Blake Lenett.

Congregation Beth Shalom of Clearwater, Florida is an egalitarian Conservative synagogue of almost 230 families. Known as as a compassionate, welcoming, inclusive and above all, loving, faith-based Jewish community, people describe CBS as “my family” and “comfortable”. Almost 230 families join together in prayer, song, education, service of the heart, and the celebration of life-cycle events in a true feeling of togetherness.

Join the Brotherhood and be part of our family

The CBS Brotherhood is made up of a group of individuals dedicated to the growth of our organization and the building of a strong fellowship among the men of CBS. The Brotherhood offers you many ways to participate in strengthening the synagogue and community by mixing opportunities for service with chances for men to interact both socially and spiritually.

The Brotherhood organizes many outstanding social and educational programs to keep the CBS membership informed, involved and engaged. CBS Brotherhood Co-Presidents Frank Rubin and Jeff Brown are planning an exciting year of programs and events, beginning on Sunday morning October 9 when the Brotherhood will mobilize, assemble and erect the “Siegel Sukkah”, followed by “Pizza and Pets in the Sukkah” on Thursday evening October 13.

The CBS Brotherhood are leading a delegation to the Florida Region FJMC Weekend Ruach Retreat, October 21-23 at the Embassy Suites in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. This event is open to all CBS Brotherhood members. For more information, please visit https://floridaregionfjmc.org/2022/09/join-the-mens-club-weekend-ruach-retreat/.
