Brotherhood of TOS

Some of our members have been involved with our Brotherhood for years and it has enriched our lives and our connection to our Temple. Many of us now know people that we did not know before and just as importantly, they know us. We get to see old friends and meet new ones, and we don’t have to impress anyone with our job titles or business success, but at the same time we get to schmooze and network with each other.

We also relate to people that we truly enjoy spending time with. Involvement with our membership, programs, and Tikkun committees further enriches our experience. In addition to an increased connection to our Temple, being in the Brotherhood helps serve the greater good of Temple Ohabei Shalom. Our annual Breakfast with the Brothers is a big hit, and raises funds, most of which we contribute back to Temple Ohabei Shalom and the Ansin Religious School.

Give us a chance this coming year and see if your participation enhances your life as it has ours. Become part of our active Brotherhood and make our programs even better!
