Men's Club

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.


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.
