Temple Beth Torah Brotherhood In Wellington Donates To Local Charities

The Temple Beth Torah Brotherhood announced that it has selected Hospice of Palm Beach County, Jewish Adoption & Family Care Options (JAFCO) and Speak Up for Kids of Palm Beach County for its annual charitable donations. The money was primarily raised from the brotherhood’s golf benefit held April 26, 2015.

For more than a decade, the Temple Beth Torah Brotherhood has consistently supported local charitable and governmental agencies, including funding scholarship and educational programs at Wellington’s Temple Beth Torah through its fundraising endeavors.

“A primary tenet of Judaism is — and always will be — tikkun olam, repairing the world. Our brotherhood understands how much the impact of performing the mitzvah of giving back impacts the world around us,” said Rabbi Andrew L. Rosenkranz of Temple Beth Torah.

On Sunday, April 17, the Brotherhood will hold its 13th annual golf benefit at the Rees Jones Course at Breakers West. Each year, the golf event attracts more than 120 golfers and corporate sponsors.

“Our annual golf benefit is one of the premier golf events in South Florida. By selecting pristine private golf venues such as the Rees Jones Course at Breakers West, we attract avid golfers and major corporate sponsors year after year,” said Gregg Lowenstein, past president of the Temple Beth Torah Brotherhood.

If you would like to make a donation to the Temple Beth Torah Brotherhood or participate in the annual golf benefit, call Lowenstein at (561) 307-4243.
