Men's Club & Abba

Welcome to Men's Club. Our club is one of 250 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.

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 Rob Sherman and Eddie Silverman at


Upcoming Events

Yom HaShoah Yellow Candle Program. Each year, OT Men's Club distributes yellow candles for Yom HaShoah to OT members and George Mason University Hillel as part of the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs' Yellow Candle Program. This program helps us fulfill our collective obligation to honor and remember the Six Million who perished in the Holocaust. To honor those who perished, we encourage OT members to give tzedakah in the tradition of remembering loved ones on their yahrzeits. Your tzedakah will support survivors in our community and educate OT’s next generation. We will donate part of the net proceeds from the candle distribution to an important Jewish Social Services Agency (JSSA) initiative strongly supported by Rabbi Kalender—the JSSA Holocaust Survivors and Family Support program—which provides resources and services for Holocaust survivors living independently in our area. We also will use part of the proceeds to help offset the costs of Shabbat morning youth programming. Click here to donate.
