Brotherhood

CBI Brotherhood building the sukkahThe Congregation B’nai Israel Brotherhood provides a fresh vision of Judaism for a new generation of men. Mindful of the diverse background of today’s Jewish male, the Brotherhood seeks to reinvent itself as a relaxed and enjoyable setting for personal growth and communal connection. If you haven’t connected with a Brotherhood, our club was designed for you!

The mission of our Brotherhood is to foster fellowship among the men of B’nai Israel and to inspire acts of Tikkun Olam, sustaining and promoting Jewish culture and community. The Brotherhood engages, educates, and energizes our members, promoting strong leadership and Jewish ideals for our community and ourselves.

Both groups offer fun, fellowship, games, and a youth-centered exploration and development of faith. We gather to support one another, to have a good time, and to think about some of the big questions of life in a safe environment. We have regular meetings with activities and special events throughout the year. The youth group participates in several mitzvah projects every year, such as working with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and The Zaban Shelter.
