Community, Camaraderie, and Accomplishment

Each year, on the first Sunday mornig 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.

Women who have found Community at MRT

Purim isn't complete without Hamantashen - particularly when baked by our Sisterhood culinary wizards! These women along with other Sisterhood members participate in a variety of social, service, and fund-raising activities, deepening their connections to one another and to Judaism.

Welcome to Our Synagogue!

We are an open and inviting congregation for anyone seeking to connect to Jewish community, tradition, study and worship. Our members come from all parts of Monmouth County. We are affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism and combine contemporary values with classical teachings of Torah. We are eager to connect with you so please do not hesitate to contact us at 732-747-9365 if you cannot immediately find what you need on this website.

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.


 

Worship With Us!

Every Friday night is special at Monmouth Reform Temple. Our services, led by Rabbi Marc Kline and Cantor Gabrielle Clissold are spiritually uplifting and filled with joyful music. 


 

Socialize with Us!

Our Men's Club and Sisterhood provide many opportunities to meet with other congregants. Sisterhood-sponsored events provide something for everyone. There are monthly book clubs and speakers, Supper in the Sukkah, the Purim Party, as well as the wonderful Apple Cake & Honey and Sh'lach Manot fundraisers. Brotherhood meets monthly followed by a friendly game of poker. They excel in the kitchen serving up a great "Tail-gate Party" at the Monday night Minyan and Football or serving a gourmet Home-cooked Breakfast on Mother's Day.

MRT Upcoming Events

MRT Shabbat Kallah

amy scheinerman    Relationships, Power & Sex:
    A Jewish Perspective
    with Rabbi Amy Scheinerman
     Saturday, February 7th
     Torah Study at 9:30am followed by Services at 10:30am
     Program continues throughout the day

Shabbat Kallah with Rabbi Scheinerman topics:

 "Getting Relationships Right: Can Leaders Play Nicely in the Sandbox?"

The relationship between Moses and Jethro is wonderful. And it's an anomaly. Competition, ideology, ignited tempers, conspiracy are not unique to 21st Century American politics; the rabbis faced them in the House of Study long ago. What wisdom can we glean for our own time and our own communities?

 

 LUNCH

 

 "Jews and Power: Having it, Wanting it, and Using it"

We Jews have long had an ambivalent relationship with power. Our early biblical heroes were strong, robust and imbued with power. Yet our religious narratives tell us we began as slaves. Many of our festivals encapsulate our ambivalence about power and powerlessness. Today with Israel the conversation continues. What does it mean to have an exert power? What is the Jewish way to exercise power?

 

 "Gender, Sex & Sexuality: The Good, The Bad, The Funny, and the Funnier"

What does our tradition say about sex, gender and sexuality? Neither Torah nor Talmud are shy about the topic. While Torah lays the groundwork, our Sages further the discussion in directions that may surprise, delight and shock you. Find out what the Talmud REALLY says.
