Holy Blossom Temple Brotherhood is the men’s club of Holy Blossom Temple.

  • Our popular Brotherhood Breakfast Club is held approximately once a month on Sunday mornings from October to May and provides lectures and entertainments of Jewish interest and a delicious breakfast prepared by Brotherhood volunteers.
  • We have a Baseball Team, the Holy B’s, that competes in the Inter Synagogue Baseball League (ISBL).
  • Our growing Photography Group meets throughout the year.
  • We sponsor educational and study programs. We organize good works and tzedakah. All bar and bat mitzvah youths of the congregation receive a gift of the Plaut Torah Commentary from Brotherhood.
  • We participate in men’s retreats organized by the Ontario Brotherhoods of Reform Judaism (OBRJ) and are affiliated with the Men of Reform Judaism, MRJ (formerly North American Federation of Temple Brotherhoods, NFTB).
  • We are a voice for the concerns that engage Reform Jewish men. We provide an atmosphere in which men can talk to each other about their Jewish feelings and offer mutual support.

We invite all the men of the congregation to participate in Brotherhood. Join Brotherhood to make a hands-on contribution and to enhance your affiliation with the Temple and your own Jewish life. Help us pursue worthwhile enterprises. Share your ideas and shape the direction that Brotherhood takes in the future.
