Men's Health Programs

2011 Pizza & Bicycles 101

occurred within the confines of the shul and would engage men activities that would enable men to form relationships beyond the temple environment. Temple Emunah Brotherhood started a bicycle club and in doing created a program that enabled men who enjoyed bicycling to meet in an off-bike environment. "Pizza and Bicycles 101" was held at a bicycle store with a lecture followed by Q&A on tire repair and safety.  Future programs are planned around Bicycle safety for parents and children.

2011 Temple Israel Center of White Plains Annual Health Fair

Temple Israel Center of White Plains conducts their annual Health Fair and Blood Drive at which non-profit health organizations and drug companies provide pertinent information about their organizations. In addition, and new this year to bring more families from Temple as well as outside in, we have replaced medical practitioner lectures with a new program on “cyberbullying and internet issues” and a second panel on criteria for selecting a health care insurance provider.

2009 To Life !

“To Life!” Is the title for the overall health and wellness programming for the Temple Israel Brotherhood. In response to Bob Braitman’s outgoing presidential speech at the 2007 convention, we created programs to promote increased physical activity in our club. As a result, we have fielded a Brotherhood softball team as part of a Jewish Softball League through the summer, sponsored a golf tournament, F1 car racing, regular bike rides from the Spring through Fall, and “Tennis on Tuesdays” throughout the Fall and Spring.

2009 Wellness Initiative

Taking to heart the encouraging words of Dr. Bob Braitman at the last FJMC Convention, the programming this year for the Men’s Club of Temple Aliyah included numerous activities which had an overwhelming focus on men’s health.  There was a particular drive to get more of our members exercising regularly.

2009 Wellness Initiative Programming

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.
