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. The Men’s Club 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.

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. And for worshiping at home, we have prepared a wonderful Holiday Handbook! And now, you can enjoy Live Streaming of our services!

Learn With Us!

We offer innovative classroom experiences for Kindergarten through 7th grade, Mitzvah Academy for 8th and 9th grade, and Confirmation classes with the Rabbi for 10th grade and beyond. Meeting days and times can be found in the Youth Learning section of our website (K – 6th, 7 – 9th, and Confirmation).

Our enriching  Adult Jewish Learning program provides various forums for learning. The annual Shabbat Kallah/Scholar-in-Residence weekend always features a timely topic by a celebrated lecturer. More informal yet very popular Tuesday morning Study Group with the Rabbi is currently in session.

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.

Wear Your MRT Pride and Help Repair the World!
