The mission of the PJTC Men's Club is to strengthen and promote the vision and
activities of the congregation in general and, in particular, to promote and support the activities of our community youth and further their Jewish education. We also try to promote and instill among our members a more thorough knowledge and appreciation of our Jewish heritage and stimulate social and cultural activities among our members and build ties with our broader local Jewish community.

We devote most of our time and resources to activities in these five areas:

1. In fulfilling our Mission Statement, Men’s Club financially supports the Louis B. Silver Religious School, B'nai Simcha Preschool, PJTC's United Synagogue Youth (USY) chapter, and Jewish Federation youth events. We also provide each of our B'nai Mitzvah with a beautiful Yad to encourage their continued study and reading of Torah.

2. Offering many social activities and events with the goals of building friendships, providing information of interest to our community, and supporting our program objectives.

3. Engaging in activities that further our following the Jewish tenets of g'milut hasadim (deeds of kindness) and tikkun olam (working to serve and improve our congregation, our local community and our world) in everything we do.

4. Supporting PJTC congregational events, including ushering during the High Holiday services, participating in PJTC campus beautification, and hosting onegs and kiddushes.

5. Growing our membership, which is open to anyone—man or woman—who wishes to aid us in achieving our goals and supporting our Jewish youth.

Our upcoming programs this year include:

  •   HeBrews and Burgers nights-a social gathering the last Wednesday of each month, typically at T Boyle's Taven
  • Bagel Breakfast October 22, 2023
  • Veterans Day event honoring the military veterans in our Jewish Community, November 12, 2023
  • NFL Football Pool and March Madness NCAA Basketball Pool
  • Hy Vego Man of the Year Award Presentation and Dinner (April 7, 2024)
  • Speaker and Installation Breakfast (June 30, 2024)
  • And a whole lot more!

There are also several unique activities that come up during each year as we try to make the Men's Club an auxiliary group that is entwined in the fabric of all PJTC activities. 

We also annually support:

  • LBSRS through semi-annual Pancake Breakfasts
  • USY by hosting the annual USY Pool Party
  • PJTC programming honoring new members
  • Weekly basketball games
  • Scholarships to Jewish summer camp and financial support for B’nai Simcha Preschool, Jewish Federation Youth Orchestra, Louis B. Silver Religious School, and PJTC’s USY & Kadima youth groups.

While most of our programs are for educational and entertainment purposes, we do raise funds through dues, occasional fundraisers, and other donations. The money raised by PJTC Men’s Club goes toward our local Jewish youth. We always answer the calls from Debby to support religious school projects and from Emily Fischer to sponsor USY and Kadima programs. We give each B’nai Mitzvah a beautiful Yad on their special day. Men’s Club also supports our local Jewish Federation’s youth activities and B’nai Simcha pre-school. One of our more celebrated annual events is when we honor the brave men and women who have served in the armed forces including all Branches of the US, Israel, and our Allies. We invite the older LBSRS students to participate and listen to “living history.”

Membership dues, funds collected from our NFL football pool and March Madness college basketball bracketology, tributes and other donations to Men’s Club allow us to continue these philanthropic efforts. Our dues structure is very reasonable, and your membership will make you part of this wonderful mission to support our Jewish youth.
