The Sunshine State is the home to close to one hundred active and dynamic Reform, Conservative and Orthodox Men’s Clubs and Brotherhoods; many of the have similar names but each one is unique. Today we take a trip to sun drenched, tranquil shores of Florida’s Atlantic Coast and shine a spotlight on the Temple Beth El Men’s Club of West Palm Beach, Florida.

Temple Beth El WPB President Moshe Adler

Temple Beth El has served the needs of Conservative Judaism in Palm Beach County for almost hundred years. Since its early beginnings as part of the “Jewish Community Center”, Beth El has grown into a vibrant, multi-generational Synagogue of nearly to 200 families with a thriving religious enrollment, offering a wide array of services and multi-generational programs including Jewish education for children and adults, cultural activities, social action, grief support and spiritual healing. At the heart of Temple Beth El is a family of families; the opportunity to celebrate together and share family life cycle and social events as a congregation. Temple Beth El is affiliated with the United Synagogues of Conservative Judaism.

The Men’s Club at Temple Beth El is a welcoming community that celebrates camaraderie, service, and Jewish values. It provides a space for men of all ages to come together and form meaningful connections. Engage in thought-provoking discussions, participate in community initiatives, and create lasting friendships while strengthening your connection to Judaism and the broader Beth El community. Whether it’s gathering for social events, engaging in volunteering opportunities, or deepening your understanding of Jewish traditions, the Temple Beth El offers a supportive environment where you can grow personally, spiritually, and make a positive impact.

The Temple Beth El Men’s Club offers opportunities for fellowship and good works and host many worthwhile programs and events including Remember a Child, supporting the Fishman Youth Fund and the ever popular “Men’s Club Theater Party”, attending live theater and musical productions by the very talented professionals in the theater in Century Village. The Temple Beth El Men’s Club was an active participant in the recent Florida Region FJMC Men’s Club Weekend Ruach Retreat, and sponsors an annual World Wide Wrap program, Men’s Club Shabbat and distribution of Shoah Yellow Candles for Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). Men’s Club hosted a well attended Men’s Club Mini-Dinner and Movie night featuring a screening of “Live and Become”, the epic story of an Ethiopian boy who was airlifted from a Sudanese refugee camp to Israel during Operation Moses (1984). Men’s Club members do it all; they man the grill for member barbecues, provide financial support for Temple programs and events and are actively involved on event committees in support of Beth El.
