Torah - Mitzvot - Community

There are over a hundred Synagogues, Men’s Club’s and Brotherhoods in Florida; some of them may have the same name however are each unique. Today we shine a spotlight on the Temple Beth El Men’s Club of Ft. Myers.

Temple Beth El is committed to the principles of Reform Judaism and the highest standards of Jewish worship, education and celebration at every stage of life. They provide a welcoming Jewish haven and extended family of the spirit along with a sensitivity to the needs of interfaith families. Beth El’s modern, inclusive religious community offers a relationship with G-d through communal worship, Torah study and interactions with one another. Their weekly Shabbat services, filled with songs and prayers, resonate with people of every age.

The Men’s Club of Temple Beth El hosts many unique programs that are informative, social and fun, They also help to raise funds for the Temple. Meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend. Join in the lively discussions about our ongoing projects and new ideas for future projects, while you lend a hand to make our events successful. In addition to special events, the Men’s Club takes responsibility for bringing Shabbat services to online viewers, recording and broadcasting through Live stream. Wiring, operating and maintaining the audio/visual system in the sanctuary and social hall has allowed snowbirds and those physically unable to be present in the sanctuary to literally stay plugged in to Temple life. Men’s Club President Brian Bronsther invites you to join Men’s Club and be part of the future of Temple Beth El.

The Fort Meyers area recently suffered catastrophic loss from Hurricane Ian. In addition to damage to Temple Beth El, there are currently sixteen TBE congregants whose homes are currently unlivable. Rabbi Luna has been in contact with each one and is distributing funds to those in need from the Rabbinic Discretionary Fund. To directly help those TBE congregants whose homes have been damaged or destroyed, please consider a donation to the Rabbinic Discretionary Fund.

Temple Beth El is fortunate to have an active and involved local Jewish Federation led by TBE member Debbie Sanford. The Jewish Federation food pantry is open Tuesday-Thursday from 9:00am-3:00pm and has financial assistance and gift cards available to help. Please consider a donation to the Jewish Federation Food Pantry so the Jewish Federation can continue doing this vital work.

Temple Beth El is partnering with Temple Shalom in Naples, Bat Yam Temple on Sanibel, the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island and Naples Jewish Congregation to coordinate relief efforts in the Fort Myers area. Please become part of our Rainbow of Help and join this important collaborative recovery effort.

Men’s Club is Brotherhood; please please help Temple Beth El of Ft. Myers to fulfill the vision of Isiah: “They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations…and you will be called ‘priests of the Eternal’ and named ‘servants of our God.” (Isaiah 61:4-6).
