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!

The Club’s mission is based on building a brotherhood of like-minded men who wish to share their commitment and values to those in the greater Southern New Hampshire Jewish community. The Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club is a non-profit organization serving all male members of the Southern NH Jewish Community regardless of synagogue membership for over thirty years.

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.

September 10th – Live breakfasts are back!!!

Southern NH Jewish Men’s Club In-Person Breakfast
Sunday, September 10th at 9:30 AM
Temple Beth Abraham

I hope that everyone has been enjoying the summer. 

I would like to update you on actions taken by your newly elected SNHJMC Board of Directors when we met on August 14th to determine dues, monthly meetings and breakfast admission costs going forward as we begin the new year.

First and foremost, going forward, all monthly events will be conducted in-person at Temple Beth Abraham.  We will start our fall season with a breakfast schmooze meeting on Sunday, September 10th starting promptly at 9:30 am. 

To sustain the SNHJMC, we will be reinstating annual dues starting in September.  The board decided that the annual dues be set at a suggested donation of $36 per year.  Please note financial ability to pay your dues is never a barrier to membership in the Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club.  If you would like to have a confidential conversation regarding your dues commitment, please contact either myself or our Treasurer, Rich Cohen.

During the past several years, we have all felt the increase in food costs.  There was a discussion about the cost of our monthly breakfasts which concluded with what we feel will ensure the financial stability of our club as well as provide an incentive for new members to join.  Starting with our September 10th breakfast, the cost for breakfast will be $10 for all members in good standing and any of those members out-of-town guests that may accompany them.  The cost for breakfast for non-members will be $18.  Our kitchen crew will be preparing a sumptuous feast of eggs, potatoes, bagels, lox and whitefish salad with veggies, fruit, juice, and coffee.
New members will be able to join on the spot should they desire to take advantage of the breakfast discount.  As we did in the past, dues may be paid when you arrive for breakfast or by mailing a check to, SNHJMC Treasurer c/o Temple Beth Abraham, 4 Raymond Street, Nashua, NH   03064.

I look forward to seeing everyone on September 10th to help kick off our new season!

To help with planning and insure that we have enough food prepared,  please be sure to RSVP to

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 more good men! 

We are still short of members on the BoD.  We need 6 on the board and at this time, we now have 5.  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.

We can always use help for programming and events.  You don’t have to be a board member to help!  The Officers and Board always want to hear from our members about anything related to the Club, Programming, or Events.  Your creativity and ideas are always needed!  Please reach out to the President at

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  Thank you!
