Men's Club Sunday Breakfast

Future dates to be announced...

CBS Men's Club Second Annual Kosher Chili Cookoff Trial Run

Sunday, January 23, 2022

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
in the CBS Parking Lot


The Men’s Club wants to improve on our already great chili, in preparation to WIN this year’s Kosher Chili Cookoff. The only ingredient we need is… YOU!

We have a great chili recipe. The challenge is that we only get to prepare it once a year, so it’s hard to know how we can improve it. We are therefore going to stage a trial run here at CBS on January 23rd.

We are going to replicate the same conditions we experience at the actual Cookoff: we’ll start at the same time, use the same ingredients (including 30 lbs of kosher ground beef) and the same types of prep tools and equipment.

At 12 Noon, we will start handing out samples to all comers. And we want your feedback! How do you like it? Do you like the blend of ingredients? Is it too spicy, not spicy enough, does it need more salt, less salt, more cumin, less onion…let us know your secrets for making a great chili! We will use your feedback to fine-tune our recipe.

We will also have pints of chili for sale - stock up for future use! It freezes well.

We hope this will be a fun time for our community. See you there - support the Men’s Club!

Men's Club Meeting

The meeting will be in person at Brith Shalom on Monday, February 7, 2022 at 7:00 PM.  Dinner will be served. All are welcome to attend.

CBS Men's Club February Blood Drive


Please join us Sunday, February 27 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM at Congregation Brith Shalom, 4610 Bellaire Blvd, Bellaire, TX 77401 for the Congregation Brith Shalom Men’s Club February Blood Drive.  Donating blood is one of the best ways that you can help another person, and you can help as many as three people with your donation, so please donate if you can!

The life-saving activities of the Gulf-Coast Regional Blood Center have been severely impaired by the COVID-19 epidemic.  Our Men’s Club Blood Drives are an opportunity for us to help remedy this. A Heartfelt Thanks to all those who came to donate at our previous blood drives. 

There are three fundamental changes in how the Drive will be conducted from what we have done in the past:

1.  Unlike past drives where we have been run on a first-come first-served basis, due to the social distancing required for COVID prevention, the Drive will operate BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

To make an appointment for our FEBRUARY 27 Drive, please click on the following link:

Donors will have the opportunity to donate double red cells, red cells – plasma, as well as  whole blood. Machine donations should be scheduled no later than 12 PM.

2.  Regretfully, due to COVID, we will NOT be serving our traditional Men’s Club Bagel Nosh at this Drive and will solely rely on the snacks and drinks provided by the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center. 

3.  The wearing of Face masks will be REQUIRED at the Drive.

If you have any questions about your eligibility to donate blood, or have any questions or concerns about the donation process, please call the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center at (713) 790–1200.

If you have any other questions, please contact me by email or phone: (713) 664-9511 (H)/ (713) 444–9697(C).

Please be sure to bring a photo ID. 

Thank you for being a blood donor!  
Hope to see you Sunday, February 27th!
