About | Membership | Events | Contact

Welcome to Men's Club. Our club is one of 250 clubs of the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs throughout the world whose overall objective is to involve Jewish men in Jewish life. Here at OT, our club encourages men to grow together in all aspects of Jewish life, build friendships, and foster a strong Jewish community through volunteerism.

Men's Club Officers

President: Barry Hemmerdinger
Immediate Past President: Marvin Kon
Vice Presidents: Howard Sloan, Rick Neifeld, Seth Feldman, Dennis Staten
Treasurer: Gary Aiken
Secretary: Steve Kirsch
Vice President/Abba Co-coordinators: Eddie Silverman and Josh Renne


Abba, which means "father" in Hebrew, is a committee within Men's Club for fathers of young children. We plan events for dads who want to socialize with other Jewish men, participate in wide-ranging Jewish activities, and just get out of the house every now and then.

There is no time commitment or membership fee, though Men's Club membership is encouraged. Abba events occur about once a month and each event is organized by different participants in the group. Events are scheduled at times that are friendly to fathers of young children. For more information about Abba, contact Eddie Silverman and Josh Renne at
