The TAE Brotherhood is a diverse group of men of all ages committed to meaningful social interaction, learning, and having fun together. We are also committed to hosting fundraising events,  raising money to financially support the Temple and making an impact on the cultural and spiritual well-being of our congregation.  We foster strong friendships among Brotherhood members by sponsoring programs such as the Sunday Morning Breakfast Speaker Series,  monthly Social nights, weekly Monday evening Men’s Torah Study, a Passover Seder and once a year, and  Friday evening Men’s Shabbat.

Sunday Morning Speaker Series 

Sunday, December 13th, at 10:00 a.m. via Zoom

Join our own, Deborah Bass, senior staff scientist/manager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  

Topic – The Psyche Mission: Mapping a Never Before Seen Asteroid

Deep within rocky, terrestrial planets, including Earth, scientists infer the presence of metallic cores, but these lie unreachably far below the planets’ rocky mantles and crusts and are therefore not directly observable. Because we cannot see or measure Earth’s core directly, Psyche, which appears to have emerged from the deep core of a rocky planet, promises to offer a unique window into our planet’s violent history and allows us to glimpse deep inside our planet’s core. – From JPL’S website (slightly edited)

The Sunday Breakfast Speaker Series takes place on the second Sunday of every month at 10:00 a.m
