Brotherhood is carrying out its mission of performing mitzvot that support the congregation and the larger Jewish Community. Brotherhood builds a community of friends, does community service, and has fun. It sponsors Boy Scout Troop 806 and Cub Scout Pack 806, our sukkah, Kiddush Cups for B’nai Mitzvah, and Confirmand Awards. From hosting exciting events throughout the year to ushering during High Holy Days, Brotherhood is a thriving part of our congregation!
