Yom Rishon, 15 Elul 5775

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. 


Learn With Us!

The MRT Religious School begins with Kindergarten. Grades K-3 meet on Sundays from 9:30am-12pm. Grades 4-7 meet on Sundays and Wednesdays from 4pm-6pm. We are proud of our High School program! Mitzvah Academy for 8th and 9th graders with our Cantor, meets Sunday mornings from 9:30am - 12noon. Confirmation meets with the Rabbi on Sunday mornings from 10:30am - 12noon.

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.


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.
