Join the Discussion – the Future of Brotherhood
Sunday, April 13th from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Since the time we restarted the Brotherhood (formerly Men’s Club) in 1999 we have had only three Presidents. Joel Kriger, Norm Katz and I, Phil Snyder, have worked hard to plan events and create a warm and welcoming Brotherhood full of interesting social, ritual, and educational programs. We are proud of all that we have done and want to see our Brotherhood flourish. However, we’re keenly aware that times and demographics are changing and we don’t have all the answers on what types of activities would be most interesting to you. One big challenge is how to design activities that appeal to a very wide age group. Some clubs focus certain activities on the younger guys and others focus on the older guys. That might be something we should consider as well. If you have ideas or opinions on the types of activities you would like to attend, then we would like to hear from you. Like any other organization, Brotherhood needs not only good programs but great programs that appeal to our target audience.

On Sunday, April 13 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. in the Cohen Social Hall we will be meeting to discuss the future of our Brotherhood. We will have a bagel brunch and discuss leadership and topics of interest to our members. Please RSVP. I will look forward to seeing all of you there and anyone you know who is interested in joining our Brotherhood.

Nature Hike
Sunday, May 4th from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m.

Join us for an educational hike around fabled Kumeyaay Lake.  Happy Nature Man

Hike Master extraordinaire, Bob Holloway, Brotherhood member and certified Mission Trails Park Guide will lead us on a cultural hike emphasizing the Indian culture that inhabited Mission Gorge 2000 years ago.  Examples of indigenous flora and archeological artifacts will be pointed out along the way.  We will hike from the lake, to the grasslands, to the Old Mission Dam and back to the lake parking lot.  The terrain is level and a #1 in difficulty (easy).  The distance is about one and a half miles and should take no more than an hour and a half.  Please bring a water bottle for each hiker in your family and don’t forget sunglasses, a hat and sunscreen. Meet at Tifereth Israel parking lot promptly at 8:30 AM.  We will carpool to the trail head and start the hike at 8:45 sharp.
