SNHJMC

Since 1982 the Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club has been a social organization for men in the southern New Hampshire Jewish community. The SNHJMC was formed for the purpose of providing a vehicle for members to socialize and have fun!

We have positive relationships with Synagogues in the Southern New Hampshire area. Many of our members belong to Temple Beth Abraham in Nashua, Congregation Betenu in Amherst, and Etz Hayim Synagogue in Derry.  We do not require our members to have joined any Synagogue in the area as a condition of being a member of the SNHJMC.

COVID-19 Coronavirus Situation and SNHJMC Events – UPDATED 11/5/2020

Temple Beth Abraham continues to do most of their programs virtually. There have been some events where limited numbers of people have been allowed into the Temple.

For the foreseeable future, the Men’s Club will continue to do our programming virtually. Should there be any changes in regards to a future program, please look for an email from us and/or consult our website.

The Men’s Club would ask that you please take all precautions necessary to keep you and your family safe.

Southern NH Jewish Men’s Club Breakfast – Everything you Wanted to Know about Smoked Fish and more

Sunday, May 16, 2021  5 Sivan 5781

9:30 AM – 12:00 PM

    “Everything you always wanted to know about Smoked Fish

and more will be the topic discussed by Adam Caslow, Co-CEO of Acme Smoked Fish on Sunday, May 16th, at 9:30 AM, LIVE via ZOOM presented by the Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club.

Adam Caslow is a fourth-generation owner-operator and co-CEO of Acme Smoked Fish.  Adam received a B.S. from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration in 2005 and went on to work within the food and beverage department of The Little Nell Hotel in Aspen, CO.  In 2007, Adam moved to Pompano Beach, FL to facilitate Acme’s acquisition of Great American Smoked and form Acme Smoked Fish of Florida, LLC.  In 2008, Adam led an implementation of a new ERP system for Acme to enhance Acme’s traceability program and yield monitoring. “One of my favorite parts of the job is speaking with our Fish Friday customers and hearing how our products are a part of family celebrations all over the world.”  Away from the smokehouse, Adam enjoys all outdoor athletic pursuits, traveling abroad, and exploring great New York City restaurants. 

Adam will join us to discuss the various smoked fish(s) that our community loves, including Smoked Salmon, Kippered Salmon, Sable, Whitefish and Trout.  Learn about the difference between hot smoking and cold smoking.  Learn about assorted varieties such as Lox vs Nova, Gravlax, Scottish, Irish, Pastrami, Peppered and more!  We might even learn a little about herring!  Adam will also discuss how Acme has evolved since beginning from the back of Harry Brownstein’s horse drawn wagon in 1906 to becoming one of the largest fish smoking companies in the United States.  You’ll also learn about Acme’s Fish Friday, something you won’t want to miss!

Adam’s presentation will be followed by an open question and answer session.

The Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club is proud to sponsor Adam Caslow’s presentation which will start off with “Schmooze Time” from 9:00 am to 9:30 AM. This presentation is open to the public but advance registration is required. Please contact Don Gorelick at president@snhjmc.org to confirm your registration.

SNHJMC’s Bruce Retchen/Neil Goren Fund

Do you have children or grandchildren who will be traveling to Israel as part of a semester abroad or a summer experience?  How about local Jewish summer camps?

The philanthropic arm of the Southern NH Jewish Men’s Club, the Bruce Retchin/Neil Goren fund, was instituted to provide financial stipends for our community’s youth planning such ventures. All that is required is a letter from your student or camper outlining their plans and the educational benefit of the program or camp they are attending.

Please send your request to the SNHJMC, c/o Temple Beth Abraham, 4 Raymond Street, Nashua NH 03064.  We ask that we receive your request by April 15th each year for consideration.

Looking for a few good men… more than ever! 

We are really short of members on the BoD.  We don’t ask for a lot of time, a mostly monthly board meeting usually a week before each event and would hope you could share your creativity and wisdom in helping us craft the programming this year.  We want to provide programming for what YOU and your fellow members would like to see.  Help us make that vision a reality.

Our Kitchen Krew will be looking for help once we are able to have events at the Temple again.  If you can spare some time before breakfast to help cook or setup, we could use your help.  Please consider joining us!

For more information, please contact Don Gorelick at president@snhjmc.org.  Thank you!
