Brotherhood

Brotherhood is one of the primary fundraising and “fun-raising” arms of Temple Avodat Shalom. The funds generated by Brotherhood dues and projects help underwrite and support numerous Temple activities and social action efforts. The “fun” generated by Brotherhood nurtures strong camaraderie and the acquisition of lifelong friends.
