About The Brotherhood: The Congregation Shalom Brotherhood is primarily a social organization, and we take pride in our inclusiveness and welcoming spirit. From a monthly “Guys’ Night Out” dinner to poker games, from bike rides and hikes to our annual getaway, we’re a diverse group of guys who enjoy each other’s company. Some of us were born Jewish, others simply married into it, but we tend to leave religion to services, while we focus on social life. Some of us are young, some just young at heart even if our mirrors betray us!

We’re always open to trying new activities and events. What are your interests? Come share them with us – you’re bound to find us adventurous and looking for new experiences.
