The Shaare Tefila Men’s Club has been a regional leader in organizing athletic events for the benefit of our members and Men’s Clubs throughout the Greater Washington area. Shaare Tefila currently fields two teams in each of the spring and fall inter-synagogue softball league and two basketball teams in a winter league.
At our periodic breakfast events, Men’s Club members and guests are entertained and informed by guest speakers from the worlds of business, finance, medicine, politics and culture. Each year several member CPAs discuss the latest changes in the tax code. Recently, the Men’s Club organized an open forum on relations between African-Americans and Jews. Leaders from both communities participated. Men’s Club dues are currently $40 per year. New members to Shaare Tefila receive a free year of membership. The club is always interested in recruiting new members to its Board of Directors. Currently, the Men’s Club has members who range from those who are charter members of Shaare Tefila to single men and young married men.
