Each year our activity groups grow and help further build our sense of community and camaraderie.

People from all segments of synagogue life participate and are encouraged to create their own group experiences.

Some of Brotherhood’s activity groups include:
• Teens coming together to socialize and develop leadership skills
• Members and friends who gather once monthly on a Shabbat afternoon for an enriching learning experience
• Those who have lost loved ones supporting each other and enjoying New York City cultural life together
