The Brotherhood functions as a support group for Temple Beth El Israel. Members share a common goal of assisting the Temple to grow and develop into a focal point for the Jewish community of St. Lucie County.

Brotherhood activities include:

  • co-sponsoring fund raising events with the TBEI Sisterhood
  • hosting the annual Yom HaShoah memorial service and distributing Yom
    HaShoah candles
  • supporting TBEI Religious School events
  • hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch for all Temple women
  • ushering at High Holy Day services
  • providing gifts for each Bar/Bat Mitzvah, and
  • funding scholarships for confirmation students.

The Brotherhood Board of Directors meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Temple Library.  All Brotherhood members are invited to attend the Board meetings. Membership meetings are conducted the third Tuesday of each month, traditionally from September through May.  A light lunch will be provided at general meetings, and a guest speaker of an interesting and current topic usually addresses the membership. Specific programs are announced in the Shofar and are publicized by e-mail to all Brotherhood members.

For further information please contact Leonard Epstein, President of TBEI Brotherhood, at 772.807.4713.
