Men's Club

The Shir Hadash Men’s Club is a community of men within Congregation Shir Hadash that provides opportunities for adult male congregants to create fellowship among Men’s Club members and contribute to the vitality of the congregation. We actively participate in service to the congregation and to the community, working together on projects that span the spiritual, the intellectual, the charitable, or the just plain “guy-stuff.”

Regularly Scheduled Activities 

  • Tuesday evening Poker Games: third Tuesday of the month (Rusty Gralnik)
  • Tuesday afternoon Poker Games: first Tuesday of the month (Mike Segal)
  • Walking/Hiking Group - every Thursday 10:30am-12pm: a different trail each week (Marshall Heller, Marty Lazar, Ron Wolk)

Check the calendar for upcoming events.

Our Philosophy

Camaraderie is a key aspect of the Men’s Club, so we make sure that our projects include a fair share of fun and kibbitzing as well. Our social activities are varied, and range from sporting events and movies to music and discussion. They nearly always include food and are often open to the rest of the congregation.


You are invited to attend! The Men’s Club Board of Directors typically meets on the first Sunday of each month (not in September) from 10:00 am until noon. Location is posted on the temple agenda for the day, on the entry doors.

All adult male congregants are invited to participate. To find out what opportunities to participate are available, send an email to .


Supporting the next generation of leaders at Shir Hadash

The Men’s Club seeks out and sponsors initiatives through which the Men’s Club can participate in building the future of Shir Hadash.

The Youth Leadership Grants Program encourages our 8th thru 12th grade youth to participate in Jewish-context leadership development programs offered outside our temple community. These experiences are intended to enhance the participant’s Jewish participation and leadership and provide a greater foundation for our youth to live a life of contribution to the community, informed by Jewish values.

Observance of Yom Ha’shoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day)

  • Packaging and mailing of more than 200 candles to members of the temple.
  • Planting of daffodils in the temple garden timed to bloom on the holiday.

Thanks to all those who donated to the candle project.
