Brotherhood is an active and integral part of Temple Emanu-El that offers a wide variety of programs throughout the year. These range from Sunday breakfast events to music performances to bus trips to lectures, with topics including religion, sports, photography, and social issues. Brotherhood participates in a wide variety of service activities and sponsors social and learning programs throughout the year. Our programs promote fellowship with other temple men. Proceeds from fundraising activities benefit Temple Emanu-El and its community.
