The PTBE Vision of Brotherhood

The men's organization, as we are evolving, is a unique part of the Jewish and temple experience. Being a part of the PTBE Brotherhood brings a group of over 100 Jewish men together for many unique bonding experiences. The good will generated from a common vision of friendship, ideals, community, and commitment to Judaism and PTBE, is a vision we would like to share with the entire congregation.

Be part of our movement and vision, join us and participate in our activities!

Monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Locations will vary during PTBE renovations. Please refer to the published PTBE calendar or email notifications for current information.
