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 3/25/2022

With COVID-19 cases declining, Temple Beth Abraham is beginning to re-open to members and the community. While a lot of programs are still available virtually, some programs will be available in person.

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.

This Sunday, our kickoff meeting – The Ebike, Blazing Great Fun, Adventure and Mobility in your future

Steve Hansen

“The Ebike, Blazing Great Fun, Adventure and Mobility in your future will be the topic discussed by Steve Hansen on Sunday, September 18, 2022 at 9:30 AM, LIVE via ZOOM.

The bicycle just celebrated it’s 205th Birthday this past June.  While the bicycle has combined technology, culture, tradition and history, it has continuously been re-invented.  The eBike represents the next evolutionary stage while integrating electrification, automation and networking.  The eBike is one of the most successful electronic vehicles worldwide and a trailblazer for the mobility of the future.

Join us for an engaging and educational presentation that will explain the different styles of eBikes.  Learn how eBikes remove barriers to riding and are fun for everyone.  You don’t have to be a fitness superstar or love exercise to enjoy riding an eBike.  Enjoy riding together with people of different abilities and fitness levels.  Ride on your own or participate in organized eBike activities right here in Southern New Hampshire or worldwide!  From entry level to very sophisticated, eBikes are here for your enjoyment now.

Steve Hansen has been a cycling enthusiast since he was in high school.  Steve continued loving to bike as he continued his education.  Upon graduation from Northeastern with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Steve moved west to earn an M.S. in Computer Science (focusing on Artificial Intelligence) at UCLA and then on to USC to study Computational Neuroscience.  After a successful career as a Student Engineering Assistant at Draper Labs, becoming a Senior Flight Dynamics Engineer for Rockwell Int’l and spending almost 18 years as a Principal Scientist at The MITRE Corporation, Steve has returned to his favorite pastime, cycling.  Steve is now enjoying his second “retirement” career as a Senior Service Technician for Trek Bicycle Corporation based in Nashua at Goodale’s Bike Shop.

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

The Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club is proud to sponsor Steve Hansen’s presentation which will start off with “Schmooze Time” from 9:00 AM to 9:30 AM.  Steve Hansen’s presentation is open to the public but advance registration is required. Please register in advance by emailing 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 need 6 on the board and at this time, we only have 3.  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 Paul Moverman at  Thank you!
