Brotherhood

Chairs – Stu Seltzer & Craig Rubin

WJC Brotherhood’s mission is to enhance the life of our community through a wide range of programs and activities, including seasonal speakers and an annual teach-in on a topic of interest to the community.   The Brotherhood is affiliated with the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs. Members pay $36 annual dues to support our programs.

Recent activities, from film screenings and scotch tasting to blood drives and networking events, have included:

  • Sound the Shofar: A mitzvah where we visit with nursing home residents and allow them to hear the sound of the shofar, first-hand.
  • Sports: We sponsor a championship-winning team that participates in the Westchester Hebrew Softball League. We also host an annual golf outing (the Kiddush Cup) with Larchmont Temple and sponsor weekly evening basketball games.
  • Team Tefillin: A team of 2 or 3 Brotherhood members meets with a b’nei mitzvah family in their home to teach them about the significance and logistics of putting on tefillin.
  • World Wide Wrap: Join with congregations around the world to celebrate the mitzvah of tefillin.
