Men's Club

Community, Camaraderie, and Accomplishment

Each year, on the first Sunday morning after Yom Kippur, the MRT Men's Club builds the Sukkah (and takes it down two weeks later). As long as there is coffee and donuts, there is always great energy and joy in accomplishing this Mitzvah for MRT.

Special Note

There are members of our Congregation who are very sensitive to scents. MRT strives to provide a “Scent Free” environment in our building.  The MRT community asks that you avoid wearing scents of any kind when coming to our facility and we ask you to tell your guests who visit with us. Thank you for being our partner in creating a "Scent-Free" environment.
