Pay your Men’s Club annual dues online.
Tifereth Israel Men’s Club is affiliated with the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs. FJMC is a partnership of over 250 affiliated clubs with more than 20,000 members across North America dedicated to involving Jewish men in Jewish life. FJMC empowers the men of Conservative/Masorti Judaism so that their passionate voices are heard in their communities and in the movement throughout North America and around the world.
TIS Men’s Club membership is $25 annually. A small portion of your dues goes to support the Western Region and the FJMC headquarters in New York, both of which provide resources for our local programs. The majority of your dues helps support programs we have at the club level, so that we can offer refreshments and other expenses. We are a fundraising component of our synagogue. Like Sisterhood, we make an annual High Holy Day pledge and we would like to do more through additional fundraising activities. We have several paid-up membership events each year including Monday Night Football and Final Four get-togethers. Please consider joining TIS Men’s Club by sending in a check today or paying online. Also, please fill out our member survey, even if you are not a member, to help us understand what programs interest you.
TIS Men’s Club plans activities in the following categories:
- Discussions – Hearing Men’s Voices
- Music, Entertainment & Social
- Tikun Olam – Heal the World
We now have a Facebook page. Search for “TIS Mens Club” on Facebook and join our group to get notified on all of our upcoming events.
Our main ritual programs each year are Sukkah Building and the World Wide Wrap. Our sukkah building demonstration was on September 25th and we loaned out our sukkah kit to a preschool family this year. The World Wide Wrap will take place on Sunday, February 10, 2010 at 8:30 a.m. World Wide Wrap is an annual minyan and pancake breakfast that is always well-attended by Torah School Dads and their kids. We instruct both dads and kids on how to lay tefillin as well as raising funds to provide sets of tefillin to synagogues in Central and South America.
Finally, if you would like to speak to us about planning an activity or getting more involved, feel free to contact our club president, Norm Katz.
