Answer

When are Brotherhood meetings?

Brotherhood holds a monthly meeting typically on the first Wednesday of each month and typically in Linz Hall. However, you should always check the calendar to make sure that it has not been moved because of possible conflict with a religious holiday. However, this seldom happens.


If I'm asked to do a D'Var Torah at a meeting, what do I do?

A D'Var Torah is a commentary on the current week's Torah portion. It is your personal interpretation of what you consider significant in this Torah portion to the members of Brotherhood. It should not be merely someone else's comments that you are reading. There are plenty of sources and examples of D'Var Torahs on the web that you can read, re-interpret, and make your own.

The URJ website has a detailed description of How to Write a D'var Torah: A Beginner's Guide.


Will Brotherhood take computer equipment as a donation?

No. Brotherhood has neither a use for used computer equipment nor any way of disposing of it. However, we do recycle empty inkjet and toner cartridges. They can be dropped of at the Brotherhood office at Temple.

 However, if you are looking for a place to contact in order to dispose of used computer equipment, we suggest you go to the website http://www.earth911.com/. This site can typically help you recycle almost anything.


What do I do if I have forgotten either my password or user name?

If you have lost your password or can’t remember your user name, click on the link in the very top of the screen on any page on our site that says, ”Lost Password”. This will take you to a page that will send you your password if you can type in EITHER your user name or your email address. Only one of those is required. The system will then send you a code number (NOT your password) which will allow you to reset your password. With this new password that you sent up, you will be able to sign into your account.
