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.

On Deck – “The Impact of the COVID Pandemic on Mental Health,” with Robert Feder, MD, on Sunday, February 7, at 9:30 AM, LIVE via ZOOM 

Dr. Feder will discuss the COVID Pandemic and its effect on our Mental Health and offer some suggestions on how potential coping mechanisms may help to reduce the impact of the added stress and anxiety that is affecting our community at this trying time. 

After graduating from The University of Michigan in 1972, Dr. Feder continued his studies at the University of Washington receiving his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1977.  Dr. Feder spent a year interning at Greenwich Hospital in Greenwich, CT as part of his four-year Psychiatric Residency Program at Yale University. 

Board Certified in Psychiatry since 1982, Dr. Feder has been in private practice since 1995 specializing in Adult Psychiatry, Addiction and Forensic Psychiatry.   

Dr. Feder who has been published more than 30 times serves on staff at both the Catholic Medical Center in Manchester and the Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua.  A Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and former President of the New Hampshire Psychiatric Society, Dr. Feder regularly lectures and speaks throughout the region to both his peers and civic organizations.  Dr. Feder and his wife are well known members of our community.

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

The Southern New Hampshire Jewish Men’s Club is proud to sponsor Dr. Feder’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.

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.

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!
