History of CBE Brotherhood 

Organized in 1923 as a successor to the Temple Men’s Club, which had been founded in 1915, Brotherhood continues its service to Reform Judaism, Congregation Beth Emeth and the Capital Region Jewish Community. Since 1923 as a charter member of the National Federation of Temple Brotherhoods (now the M.R.J. - Men of Reform Judaism), Beth Emeth’s Brotherhood strives to enhance the experience of temple membership by enabling men to find identity, involvement and inspiration in their lives through fuller participation in our temple community
