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!

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.

p.s.  New members will be able to join on the spot should they desire to take advantage of the breakfast discount and cast a vote.  Membership is available for a suggested donation of $36.  As always, membership 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.  Online membership registration is also available on the Temple website: https://tbanashua.shulcloud.com/form/mens-club-registration-2023-24.html

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.

Join the Board.  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 president@snhjmc.org.

Our Kitchen Krew is looking for help, now that 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!
