A community of communities

Men's Club

The GJC Men's Club is a multigenerational group of congregants who come together throughout the year to learn, socialize and serve the Jewish community.  Men's Club programming encompasses a variety of activities from sporting events and festive meals to lectures, mitzvot and fundraisers. The Men's Club welcomes you to join us at our various events throughout the year!  Check the NEW calendar, the GJC web site calendar, and the weekly listserv emails for updated info.

Events and Activities

Hanukah Activities: Each Hanukah season, we install a beautiful, custom-made Hanukiyyah on the Ellet Street lawn of the Centre. It was designed by Hy Zelkowitz and built by the Men's Club and children from the Religious School. A new candle is lit very night of the holiday and, on one night, the lighting is accompanied by a congregational celebration including a latke dinner, songs by the GJC choir, sufganiot (jelly donuts), and Israeli dancing.  Support Men's Club and GJC and honor or remember loved ones by sponsoring a candle!  Please print and return form along with your donation.   

Passport to Israel Fundraiser: A lottery is held each year at Purim. The first prize is a trip for two to Israel or $4,000 in Israel bonds.  The second prize is $360, and the third prize is $180.  Please print and return form along with your donation.
