The Nanuet Hebrew Center Men’s Club welcomes you to join us for friendly camaraderie, educational and social programs, delicious breakfasts, and synagogue and community participation.  We strive to make our programming open to the entire NHC family, including Sisterhood, and youth.

Please welcome Mitch Spiegel and Eric Zweigbaum, our NHC Men’s Club Co-Presidents.  Please e-mail Mitch at or leave a message with the NHC Office for Mitch or Eric (at 845-708-9181) if you would like to be a part of our very active Men’s Club, or would like more info on any of our upcoming programs and events.   We sincerely thank Joel Gondelman, our immediate past Men’s Club President, for all of his years of service and support.

Mazal Tov Mike Moore, NHC’s Man of the Year Award recipient at this year’s Hudson Valley Region of Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs Annual Awards Luncheon. 

This honor also coincides with NHC’s annual Men’s Club “Man of the Year” Edmund I. Karp Memorial Award, “in recognition of outstanding service to Judaism and the Community.”  This award, established in 1966 and in recognition of his achievements, was named after the late Edmund Karp, an influential “charter” member of NHC.  He was a life member of the Board, very charitable, and as a professional engineer, played an important part in the design of NHC’s original structure on Middletown Road in Nanuet.


November, 2019 Update – from Mitchell Spiegel, NHC Men’s Club Co-President

BECOME INVOLVED! There are a lot of exciting things happening with the NHC Men’s Club this year. Don’t be left out.

Men`s Club has a new logo (see top of page). Thank you Bruce, Jeff and Eric.

Men`s Club provided breakfast for the high holiday chair/book set up and sukkah set up volunteers.

Last year we had the most amazing Men’s Club Shabbat and we will be doing it again this year on January 11, 2020. If you would like to participate in this meaningful experience please let us know.

Don’t forget about our Men’s Club Football Pool. This year we have added something new. A trophy will be awarded to the person who has the most wins and there will also be a trophy for the one with the least wins. Good luck to everyone. Cash payouts will be awarded at the end of the season.

This year on Yom Kippur, Men`s Club had set up a display of Yartzeit candles. Congregants were able to sponsor a Yartzeit for a loved one. Men`s Club displayed an additional 140 Yartzeits in memory of children that had perished in the holocaust.

In September, we went to Citi Field and had a terrific time at a Met`s game.

Herb and Esther Spiegel were the big winners of our Sukkah Raffle.

The Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs (FJMC) is pleased to invite all members of NHC to receive a free subscription to the Unraveller.

The Unraveller is a weekly commentary on the haftarah written by Conservative Rabbis in an easily readable style.  It is designed to better prepare us to understand and reflect on the words of the Prophets that accompany the Torah portion for that week.  Learn about the context of that writing and why it was selected.  Learn also about other aspects of Jewish history, ideas and thought.

Please help us ensure that we have a minyan every weeknight and Sundays (Sunday-Thursday) at 7:30 pm [unless otherwise noted].  We ask that you make a point of coming down as often as you can.

 Our Breakfasts are open to All NHC Congregants – Men and Women, Potential New Families, Community and Friends.

 These famous bagels, lox and egg breakfasts also provide a great opportunity to network among fellow congregants and make new business connections and friends.

We welcome your participation!
