About Larchmont Temple Brotherhood

The LT Brotherhood originally formed in 1948 – the same year as Larchmont Temple and of course, the State of Israel. While we have an all-male Board, our membership is comprised of women and men who want to support our mission of Educating, Entertaining, and Inspiring the LT Community. We develop and sponsor community-building events that support Judaism and Jewish life through a stimulating and varied lecture series, an annual blood drive, our Yom Hashoah Candle Program, co-sponsored events with WRJ, and partnering with the School Board and the Youth Board. LTB is a member of the North American Federation of Temple Brotherhoods, a coalition of over 250 affiliated brotherhoods with 25,000 members across North America, dedicated to tikkun olam 'reparing the world" through the practice of Brotherhood.

Brotherhood invites any Temple member interested in learning more about what we do to attend a Brotherhood Board Meeting. They are usually held on the first Monday of the Month at 7:30 pm. Our first meeting will be on September 8, at 7:30 in the Axelrod Chapel.  Anyone interested in slicing bagels for a breakfast or asembling boxes for Yom Hashoa Candles or helping out at a blood drive, please let us know.

To help members new to the Temple Community, we provide Brotherhood memberships free of charge for First-Year Temple Members. For more information or to get involved, contact brotherhood@larchmonttemple.org.

Please join us at Brotherhood Breakfasts and other events.
