Brotherhood serves Temple Israel and the Akron community through its contribution of energy and resources to promote Jewish identity, Jewish education and a positive Jewish presence.

A major program of Brotherhood is to provide ushers at all Temple services, including Shabbat and the High Holy Days.

Brotherhood sponsors speakers at Temple on sports and current issues and organizes fundraisers and outings to sporting events and social and cultural functions.
In the past several years, Brotherhood has underwritten the cost of the new URJ prayerbook, Mishkan T’filah. Temple families have had the opportunity to dedicate books in honor or in memory of a loved one. We have provided funds for new and replacement equipment for Temple. We work on projects around the Temple building and grounds when the need arises.

Monthly meetings are open to all members and held the first Sunday or first Tuesday of the month (alternating). When meeting on a first Sunday, meetings are at 9:30 a.m. at Temple Israel. We then alternate the next month to have a meeting on the first Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Rockne’s in Fairlawn.

On a Sunday meeting, come to Temple and have a bagel, juice, and a cup of coffee and sit it on a very informal meeting. Then, in following month, come out to Rockne’s, order from the menu, and take part in our meeting after or while we eat.

New members are vital in the continuation of our mission. Please come to a meeting or any event so that we may get to know you and in turn get to know us.
