Summary: 

We were inspired by former FJMC president, Bob Braitman’s health and wellness initiative to ramp up what we do in this area at New City Jewish Center Men’s Club. For the current 2008-09 year, these activities have included a health related speaker at one of our monthly Sunday breakfasts, the “Walk to the Convention” challenge, a Family Ski Day, the introduction of healthy food our monthly Men’s Club business meeting, distribution of the FJMC Wellness News, a fishing and hiking excursion, and a family bowling event. Our club has a tie-in with some other events, and these mentioned as ideas for other clubs. These include a synagogue softball league and an ongoing walker’s club. Each Men’s Club needs to evaluate what health and wellness activities will work for them. We hope that the events mentioned here offer you some ideas for fashioning your own program.
