Men’s Club

The Temple Israel of Great Neck Men’s Club has served our congregation for more than 60 years. We are a diverse group of men of all ages, and our mission is to serve our members, our congregation, and our community through social events, avodah (service and prayer), kehillah (community participation), and tzedakah (charity).

Men’s Club member meetings include a dinner, a business meeting, a guest speaker, and activities including our popular “Scotch and Seder” led by Rabbi Stecker, “Vodka and Latkes” led by Hazzan Shamash, and a Texas Hold’em / Backgammon tournament.

The events that the Men’s Club sponsors for our congregation include an Opening Breakfast, and the World Wide Wrap, where our members assist congregants with the mitzvah of putting on tefillin, lead the Sunday morning service and serve a breakfast. We also sponsor the Yom Kippur Break-the-Fast and a Friday night service and dinner. We also sponsor an annual trip to a NEW YORK JET’S football game.

For the community, the Men’s Club sponsors an annual 9/11 Memorial Service, two annual blood drives, a Second Night Seder led by Rabbi Schweber, the Rabbinic Dialogue with Rabbi Stecker and other Great Neck rabbis, and conduct a direct mail fundraising effort to support the Hatzilu Rescue Organization to help the Jewish poor and elderly in Great Neck.

Watch for details about all of the Men’s Club meetings and events on the TIGN website calendar, in the Shabbat and email flyers, and the “VOICE” bulletin. We look forward to seeing you!
