The Brotherhood of Beth El Hebrew Congregation was founded to unite the men of the Congregation for all purposes conducive to the well-being and progress of both Beth El Hebrew Congregation and the cause of Reform Judaism.  Our mission is to create a sense of community among the members of the Brotherhood, their families, and the Congregation.


Membership is open to males 18 years of age and older.  Currently, no dues are required, although voluntary contributions are most welcome.


The Brotherhood of Beth El Hebrew Congregation is also an affiliate member of the national organization of reform synagogue Brotherhoods, the Men of Reform Judaism (www.menrj.org).

For those wishing to receive the MRJ newsletters and announcements of events, a sign-up form is accessible on the MRJ website.
