2011 Temple Israel of Charlotte, NC—Yom Hashoah

After taking a year off, we returned to the FJMC Shoah candle program. We use the candle program to further strengthen the ties between our men and our youth, and to stand as an example for our community.  Our 6th grade class and their parents take a morning to prepare 700 candles for mailing to our congregation.  In return for this labor, the Men’s Club underwrites their Memorial Day Weekend trip to Washington, DC and the US Holocaust Museum and Memorial.

2011 Combined Temples Charity Golf Tournament

The Brotherhood of Temple Israel, Sharon, MA developed the Combined Temples Golf Tournament a year ago as way to combine the energies and talents of five area Temples to provide a great day of golf and camaraderie. A unique, turnkey model was created to produce the tournament such that more synagogues can become involved with little effort required on their part. All proceeds are then shared among the participating groups to benefit the charitable activities of each club.

2011 Havdallah and Hike

This activity is combines the spiritual experience, learning experience and physical exercise as one. This year (2010) we have done it twice already after Daylight Saving Time had started in our calendar to accommodate later start times. The idea is to be in nature finding a trailhead that can accommodate an open gathering place where the Havdallah ceremony can take place.

2011 Improving the Health and Wellness of Our Members

Har Shalom began its Health and Wellness Program in earnest in September 2009. During its first year, the program gained a great deal of momentum that has since carried over to the 2010/2011 year. Our program is comprehensive. Some activities are informative, while others are physical in nature. The focus is on offering variety as we address the needs of Men‟s Club members of all ages as well as other men, women and children in our congregation. Our goal is to improve the health and longevity of our members and the congregation.
