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