 Who We Are:
Men Supporting Men, Men Supporting the Community

On behalf of the BHSS Brotherhood, we would like to welcome you to our community.

In recent years we all have experienced greater demands on our time. With increased responsibilities, we have had to sacrifice part of ourselves in order to meet these obligations; but at what cost? Fortunately, there is an organization in our community where men can make new friends, have conversations with those who face similar challenges, have social activities with other men, and even take care of some of their spiritual needs. That is Brotherhood.

Brotherhood provides men the opportunity to:

Make new friends – Join us for our monthly meetings where we get together for friendship and conversation at local restaurants. Our meetings are typically held on a Thursday evening.  Come for dinner, a snack, or just a drink; the choice is yours.

Discuss issues important to you – New this year!  Join us for our Sunday Morning Rap Sessions where you discuss any issues you want; be it sports, work or other challenges or topics; all in a non-judgmental setting. Also, participate in our continuing Men’s Health Series.

Participate in social activities – Activities geared towards father/child relationships, family as well as men-only events. Enjoy a night at the theatre with your Brotherhood friends and family; attend our popular Chanukah party!

Fulfill spiritual needs – Participate in a monthly Minyan, Brotherhood Shabbat, Men’s Seder (where we discuss issues facing contemporary man), and special services.

Become part of a group that provides programming for the community – Pizza night in the Sukkah, sponsoring the showing of important movies and other educational and entertainment programs.

Whether you are a young man with children or an empty nester, there is something for everyone in Brotherhood.  As a member of Brotherhood you not only invest in your community, you are investing in yourself.  Aren’t you worth it?

All men who are Jewish or a partner in an interfaith relationship are warmly welcomed.

There is strength in numbers.  We invite you to grow strong with us.  To become a member, click here for a form you can fill out right on your computer.
If you would like to know more about the Brotherhood or would like to get involved, contact us at [email protected] and either Erb, Ian or Allan will get back to you.
