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.

Annual Men’s Club Children’s Breakfast – February 28, 2021

We are sad to announce that due to the on-going Covid-19 Pandemic the Board of Director’s has decided to cancel this very popular event this year.  We look forward to bringing it back next year when we can welcome you back in person.

On Deck – “Nashua, The State of the City,” will be the topic discussed by Mayor Jim Donchess, on Sunday, March 21st, at 9:30 AM, LIVE via ZOOM

Mayor Jim Donchess

After graduating from Yale University where he majored in Art History, Mayor Donchess went on to earn his law degree from NYU School of Law with top honors.  A practicing attorney for many years, Jim became the 51st Mayor of Nashua in 1984 during a period when the city was recognized by Money Magazine as the Best Place to Live in America.  Now, Jim is beginning his Second Term of his Second Mayoralty.  He is focusing on the economic growth of the community, on strategies to ensure that all of Nashua’s children reach their full potential, on a stronger municipal infrastructure, on steady progress toward a net zero Nashua, and on the cultivation of a 21st century arts, cultural, and residential neighborhood in Nashua’s downtown.

Mayor Donchess’ presentation will be followed by an open question and answer session.

The Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club is proud to sponsor Mayor Donchess’ 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 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  Thank you!
