Sukkah build 201538The Emanuel Brotherhood is the men’s arm of the congregation. Men of all ages form this congenial group that gets together for Sunday breakfasts, throws great parties, and helps the synagogue behind the scenes in many ways. Although Brotherhood is a men’s group, women are always welcome to attend their programs. We are a Quality Club affiliate of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs (FJMC).
