Beth David Men

We Are Menschen

Beth David Men, as a group, provides members with a social outlet and a vehicle for serving Beth David and the larger community. All men in the Beth David community are welcome to join. Following tradition, we organize ushers for the High Holidays and decorate the sukkah on behalf of the congregation. We have the sacred charge of cleaning up the historic Gladwyne Jewish Cemetery. We attend sporting and other social events and sport our own softball team, the Beth David Bruins, 12-time champions of the Main Line Shul Softball League. Please come out and cheer on your Beth David team!  Every spring we hold our Spaghetti Dinner, manned by our all-star kitchen crew.
