The Brotherhood of The Community Synagogue is the men’s arm of the congregation. Men of all ages form this congenial group that meets to find inspiration through involvement with the synagogue and religious school, while engaging in social issues and supporting the local community and the Jewish world.
Brotherhood makes a difference by providing educational, cultural, and religious programs; supporting youth and Religious School activities, coordinating social action mitzvahs, and sponsoring fun social events where men can come together for camaraderie and support.
All men are invited to attend the monthly meetings, usually held on the first Monday of every month at 8:00 p.m. These meetings provide The Community Synagogue’s gentlemen an opportunity for fun and camaraderie while planning activities that enhance temple life and our community.
The Community Synagogue’s Holocaust Memorial Educational And Endowment Fund (HMEEF) is sponsoring an essay contest as part of Schreiber High School’s 2019 Local Community Scholarship program. The scholarship award is open to all graduating Schreiber students. The essay contest asks students to consider the following:
Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel wrote, “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.” What were the consequences of indifference to hate during the Holocaust and elsewhere throughout history? What are some examples of indifference to hate in today’s world and what are the consequences?
Please encourage all Schreiber seniors you know to submit essays for this important and noteworthy scholarship program. Students can obtain an application from the Schreiber Guidance Department and a full listing of community scholarships at portnet.org. The deadline for submission is February 28, 2019.

92nd Street Y Lecture Series
The 92Y Live series has become one of the most popular recurring lecture series in the greater Port Washington area. We invite you to take part in one or more of these insightful programs that have been scheduled within the next several months.
We at Brotherhood try to vary the content of the speakers who grace the stage at the 92nd Street Y. Having these events so close to home in Port Washington is convenient, informative and inexpensive.
