 B'nai Torah Blood Drive with the American Red Cross  - Thursday, November 11 from 10AM-3PM
The American Red Cross is experiencing a severe blood shortage as the number of trauma cases, organ transplants and elective surgeries rise, and deplete the nation’s blood inventory. All blood types are needed, particularly type O, as well as platelets. To assist the greater community, B’nai Torah is helping the American Red Cross as a blood donation site. If you are unavailable this month, look out for emails with more opportunities to donate. Click here to register!

 Adult Education: How To Get Away With Murder led by Rabbi K [Virtual via Zoom] - Tuesdays starting October 19 (10 Sessions)
Together we will learn about the death penalty and the Talmud, and explore questions such as "is a 'good death' ever possible?" What is the role of retribution in the criminal justice system then and now? How do the rituals of death empower or remove agency from the various actors involved? We will pair rabbinic texts with more modern takes on the death penalty and allow both types of sources to draw out aspects in the other we may not have seen otherwise. This program is in partnership with Project Zug. Click here for more information and to register!

Brotherhood Events & Programs:

Our mission is to promote social interaction and greater involvement in the synagogue. We like to think that Brotherhood is an excellent way to meet other members of the Shul on an informal basis given our wide variety of programs. Our four areas of focus are: Religion, Sports, Social, and Community. While some of our programs are Brotherhood-only, the majority are open to the broader Shul community and may be family-oriented or take place in conjunction with other B'nai Torah groups. From a ruach perspective, the Brotherhood is responsible for High Holiday ushering and leading participation in the World Wide Wrap.

Brotherhood Poker - Monthly from 7PM - 11PM
B'nai Torah Brotherhood invites you to be part of our monthly poker game!
