Men's Club

The Men’s Club is a busy group that plans activities throughout the year that encourage connections and friendships to grow among our members. Social events include a kosher steak barbecue on the Temple patio, group outings to local sporting events including hockey and baseball games, movie outings, Bears parties, and more.

In addition, as a group, we help around the synagogue helping to raise the sukkah, setting out Sunday brunches, and upkeep of our temple cemetery. We conduct an annual fundraiser involving the distribution of Yom Hashoah candles.

A membership in the Men’s Club also includes membership in the regional and national association of Temple Men’s Clubs. These large groups also sponsor social outings and social action opportunities in addition to hosting regional and national conventions.

Mostly we try to have fun! We gather, eat and even pray together. This year promises to be even better than last year. If you are a new Temple member, there is no fee to join, for all others, the fee is a modest $30.00. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting our event.

Commemorating the Six Million: Yom Ha Shoah Yellow Candles

Yom Ha Shoah is April 12, 2018 this year. Please consider participating in the tradition of lighting a yellow candle to remember those who perished.  The FJMC of America Men's Clubs will again distribute the yellow candles throughout the United States, and the WSTHZ Men's Club will participate in the program this year.  What is new, is we are distributing the candles to all of our members  & staff this year. 

We need help from interested members to help with the distribution, in the north, west, south and in Chicago. We will begin Distribution April 2nd- April 6th & April 9th -11th. Please email Morris Applebaum: morris.applebaum@icloud.com. if you can help.

Light these candles  the evening of April 11, and let them burn through the day of Yom Ha Shoah, Thursday April 12 Th.

Please consider making a donation to the WSTHZ Men's club in support of this initiative.  Through your generosity, we will continue to distribute candles every year and to pledge support to organizations dedicated to keeping the memory of the Six Million alive. Thank you in advance for your support of this commemoration!
