On July 19-23, 2017, Art Lashin and I attended the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs International Convention at the Marriot Crystal Gateway in Washington, D.C. I was honored to accept on behalf of the BSMC another Quality Club award for our outstanding programing and I was equally proud to witness Len Abrams receive the Ma’asim Tovim Award in recognition of his outstanding commitment to FJMC. 

During a delicious brunch, catered by Ata and Gary Goldberg, and sponsored by BSMC on Sunday June 11th, Art and Elliot were installed as the president and financial secretary, respectively, of the Middle Atlantic Region of FJMC.

We are running our two FundRaising Football pools this year. The no-skill required High-Low pool (entry fee $100) is limited to only 32 participants who are randomly assigned one NFL team which they retain throughout the NFL regular season. Every week of the regular season that your team either scores the highest or lowest amount of points you win $50 (if there are ties they split the $50). The Survivor pool ($50 entry fee) requires some skill and a CBSsportsline online account. Each week of the season players must select one NFL team they believe will win their game without the point spread and teams can only be selected once throughout the season. When your team loses you are eliminated from the pool. The last player(s) remaining at the end of the season win half the entry money. If you are interested in playing you must contact Don Sable here as soon as possible.

Save February 17, 2018 on your calendar for Men’s Club Shabbat. We are seeking volunteers to participate in the service with both Hebrew and English parts. If you want to participate you can email Steve Pilchik here
