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

Program FAQ:

The four bourbons originally featured in this presentation were: Elijah Craig, Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey, Buffalo Trace, and IW Harper.

Do I need to buy anything to participate? No, if you have these at home already, great, if not, you can join in and taste what's already on hand, even if it's just a crisp ginger ale. It's the l'chaim that matters!

What happened to the steak part of this? This is a bring your own steak event if wish, but since we're not starting until 8:30pm, tread lightly. Whenever it is safe for us to schedule an in-person Steak Dinner again, we'll be on it.

Isn't this event usually a fundraiser? A suggested donation of $18 to support the OT Social Action fund is encouraged (but entirely optional). This fund is doing great work to handle various community needs during on the ongoing pandemic.
