Our Mission

Temple Israel of Sharon Brotherhood’s mission is to strengthen our members’ ties to Jewish values, to build communal ties, to support Temple Israel, and to build fellowship and camaraderie through social interaction, education, performing mitzvot, and a commitment to tikkun olam.

Who We Are

The Brotherhood of Temple Israel has been acknowledged as one of the most celebrated clubs in North America by the International Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs. We won acclaim for overall programming, for Hearing Men’s Voices, for our “To Life!” health and wellness program, and for “The Mitzvah Men.” Each year, our Mitzvah Men walked for hunger, helped build a Habitat for Humanity house, delivered meals on wheels to the needy, and played an important role in providing needed resources for the Temple Israel and greater community. As a group, we work hard to support the community, and we have a great time doing it! We are proud of being able to contribute during times of need.

Here are some of the great events you will see sponsored by our Brotherhood:

  • Sunday morning breakfast programs with great food and fascinating speakers
  • The Jewish Routes Breakfast Speakers Program
  • “Mitzvah Men” Tikkun Olam (Repairing The World) projects
  • The “Best of the Best” Award-Winning Hearing Men Voices series
  • Our Annual Combined Temples Charity Golf Tournament
  • Our annual Bob Zeitsiff Memorial Brotherhood Shabbat Weekend
  • Learning about the spiritual dimensions of prayer and the holidays
  • Social programs like Movie nights & Texas Hold 'Em
  • Chanukah family party
  • Annual Online Auction
  • Patriots Football on the Big Screen and our annual “Big Game” Party
  • The “Tour de Shuls” bike rally to support the Tikvah Program at Camp Ramah
  • Tennis on Tuesdays, Shabbat Biking, Cross country skiing and Kayaking
  • Our annual Man of the Year Breakfast and Biennial Keeper of the Flame Awards Dinner
  • International FJMC Convention and The Retreat at Camp Ramah
  • ...and, there is always more!

The Brotherhood of Temple Israel is affiliated with the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs and the New England Region of FJMC.

Jewish Routes Breakfast Series 2021-2022

We often turn to the Torah as a roadmap for how we're supposed to live our lives. That may work for the commandments, but the models of family are far from ideal. From favoritism and sibling rivalry to rebellion and destructive relationships with the in-laws, Genesis has it all. We'll dive deeply into some of the most compelling stories of the Book of Genesis, looking at them from both traditional and modern lenses.
