Cape Cod Getaway!

It may be early January, but we’re already waiting for the sun with thoughts of our annual Cape Cod Getaway. Cue up The Band, as we have our “Last Waltz” at Linger Longer By The Sea in Brewster, MA on the weekend of May 18-21. That’s the weekend between Mother’s Day and Memorial Day.

Join us for a fun weekend of biking, hiking, fishing, golfing, or just relaxing and socializing! This is our last year at Linger Longer as the property is going on the market. To get a feel for what it’s like, watch this video, featuring 2022 photos from member Jesse Heines:

To help new guys experience the fun and the great location, we are offering a first-timers discount. The normal price for three nights, a private room, and all meals is $350, but if we have your check in hand by January 30, your cost is $325. For members who have previously participated, please send us your check for $350 by January 30 too.

On January 30, the Brotherhood Board will meet and decide whether we’re reserving three houses or four, depending on the number of checks received. That could limit the number of people we can include. Please send your check payable to “Congregation Shalom Brotherhood” to:

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.

Jon Boroshok (JB), Brotherhood President
