The Temple Anshe Amunim Men's Club meets at noon on the third Wednesday of each month at the Temple, 26 Broad St.

The speaker at regular meeting on Aug. 17 is Rabeh Elleithy, a Muslim man who worships at the Pittsfield Mosque. He will speak about his experiences as a Muslim living and worshiping in Pittsfield.

This meeting is designed to encourage a better understanding between Jewish and Muslim communities. Because of the importance of this speaker, the Men's Club has opened this session to the public. All interested men and women wishing to attend are invited.

Bring your own lunch; coffee and tea will be provided.
