Welcome back from summer – I hope it was a good one for you.

Brotherhood will begin the year with a planning meet-ing on Sunday morning, September 14th. We’ll dis-cuss what we’d like to do during the coming months over bagels and coffee.

The High Holy Day services are on Wednesday eve-ning, September 24th, Thursday morning, September 25th, Friday evening, October 3rd, and Saturday, Oc-tober 4th. Brotherhood members have a fine tradition of volunteering a couple of hours as ushers (together with some terrific members of the Youth Group last year!) Please email me at to let me know which service you would like to volun-teer to usher. Thanks!

On Sunday morning, October 5th – the day after Yom Kippur – Brotherhood will be assembling our sukkah, just in time for the Religious School kids to decorate it. This always tops the list of fun Brotherhood ac-tivities.

Looking ahead, I will be leading a book discussion on Sunday morning, November 16th, about Invisible City by Julia Dahl. It’s a murder mystery that takes place largely in the Hasidic community of Borough Park. (More about that in next month’s column!)

As always, our Brotherhood is happy to welcome new members. Annual Brotherhood dues are just $36. Come to our meetings, and join us!

-Steve Segall, Brotherhood President



Brotherhood Sukkah Building  Sukkah Building

The Brotherhood of Union Temple invites all of the men in the congregation to participate. Our activities include service to the Temple through our Sukkah building and clean-up days, spiritual development through our Brotherhood Shabbat service and educational programs (some of them presented in cooperation with the Adult Education Committee), and friendly breakfast meetings. In the past year, Brotherhood has also presented a book discussion about The Coffee Trader by David Liss, a Nets basketball outing, and a speaker on "Jews In Baseball" as Brotherhood’s part in celebrating 350 years of Jewish life in America. We look forward to many more interesting programs and activities in the future.
