Hearing Men's Voices

2007 Spreading the Word on Hearing Men’s Voices (pw=fjmc)

Spreading the word” on Hearing Men’s Voices has been a goal at the Brotherhood of Temple Israel for the past four years.  The program was successfully piloted at Temple Israel and received a Torch Award in 2002-2003.  Our goal since then has been to refine the series and use it as a vehicle to broaden the involvement of Brotherhood and general Temple members.  Locally, we have significantly increased the number of different individuals who have both presented and attended sessions.  More broadly, we created and distributed a PowerPoint presentation for the 2005 FJMC Intern

HMV Programs "Listening to Gods Voice" and "Work and Worth" (pw=fjmc)

Sessions were held on two Hearing Men’s Voices programs: “Listening to God’s
Voice- Encountering god in Crisis” and “Work and Worth”. Each program
consisted of four sessions conducted during a Wednesday evening on a monthly
basis from Dec. to February. “Listening to God’s Voice” was done in 5766 (2005-
2006) and “Work and Worth” in 5767 (2006 -2007). Our goal was to:

1. Have club members grapple with common situations in a Jewish context

2. Demonstrate the value of belonging to the club and the FJMC

3. Attract new members to the club.
