Len Simon oversees our Breakfast Lecture Series.  If you haven’t been to one yet, you don’t know what bagel & lox & eggs & salads & more, you are missing. Not only is the food great but our guest speakers bring a unique social perspective on a variety of topics...and cooking with the guys in the kitchen is a blast.


Temple Israel Brotherhood typically organizes two to three Midnight Runs per year, each on a Saturday night, from the late Fall through the early Spring. Our Midnight Runs bring clothing and provisions to the homeless in Manhattan at night. Students from the Temple Israel Center for Jewish Learning often participate in Midnight Runs as part of Bar / Bat Mitzvah Service Projects, or for their academic school service hours. 

  • Saturday, December 16, 2023, Midnight Run (Set Up @ 1 PM & Caravan Departs @ 8:30 PM)
  • Saturday, February 10*, 2024, Midnight Run (Set Up @ 1 PM & Caravan Departs @ 8:30 PM)

*Tentative with potential back-up dates of January 6th & February 17th respectively

Make a difference in someone's life today!

Donate warm men's clothing and meatloaves the week before to provide for the Midnight Run.

Learn more about Midnight Run by contacting Andrew Bieber, our Midnight Run Coordinator, and by reading What is Midnight Run, written by Steve Samuels.  Please read Sought After Items for more information about the types of clothing and other items we need to collect in preparation for a Midnight Run.  If you are interested in participating, whether you go on the Run or not, we need help at the Temple at 2 PM on the day of the Run to sort clothing and make sandwiches. You'll enjoy the process.

If you would like to volunteer/donate/participate in this year's Midnight Run, please fill out this form.

Jewish Renewal In Poland

Jewish Renewal in Poland was the subject of the recent Brotherhood Breakfast. The Brotherhood's relationship with the Jewish Renewal started over 15 years ago when we had a direct channel to a reform congregation in Warsaw. Since then, an umbrella organization in California has been fostering Jewish renewal in several Polish cities. The movement is attracting Polish citizens who knew their families were once Jewish and are now re-establishing their Jewish roots...some through Jewish conversion, some having Jewish weddings, some celebrating Shabbat and participating in their local temple events.

Many of brotherhood's breakfast attendees wanted to know how they could help...the speaker (Rabbi Haim Beliak) said they certainly need our economic support. To this end, if you would like to support this effort, please send your check made out to TINW-Brotherhood and mark in the note on the check "Jewish Renewal". The Brotherhood will batch all the contributions and forward them on to the Jewish Renewal in Poland.
