The Value of the FJMC

1. Access to hundreds of tested programming ideas and to the men who developed them, from all parts of the national organization. Successful programs will make your Club a stellar part of its synagogue.

2. Working together with nearby clubs on joint events, helping build your club, having larger, more successful events, attracting bigger name speakers etc.

3. Leadership development opportunities; focusing on developing club leaders, fundraising, programming or membership development ideas. Getting help with nuts and bolts topics such as membership, how to get new members and keep old members (including a Dues Statement template).

4. Finding new friends in conservative synagogues around your Region developing new relationships and feeling the "ruach" at state-wide/Region events such as Man of the Year Dinners and Summer Shabbaton Retreats. Discovering connections with men in the county, state or across the nation. Need a place to say Kaddish in Sacramento with a minyan? Need a family Pesach Seder for your kid away at College? Men's Club can find you a place. You can feel at home in any Conservative synagogue, if you belong to an FJMC Men's Club and get in touch with the distant Club's leaders. You will find chavayrim everywhere through our "Faith, Unity and Brotherhood". Hinei Ma Tov U'manayim....

5.A chance to join in meaningful Jewish programs such as the World Wide Wrap (Tefillin), Keruv (outreach to intermarried Jewish families), Shomrei Ha'Aretz (environmental initiative) or the FJMC Sefer Haftarah program.

6. Exposure to FJMC's International Convention, like USY camp for adults, with leading edge programs and movement leaders (you will hear Chazzans’ and meet Rabbis who will "knock your socks off"). Once you go to Convention, you will long for more. And the ruach you bring back to your community will show it.

7. Joining in the FJMC Yom HaShoah Yellow Candle™ program, to facilitate Holocaust remembrance and put your organization on the local Jewish map.

8. Access to the "Hearing Men's Voices" booklet series, including the latest FJMC initiatives on Relationships and "Work & Worth" (the place of work and careers in our lives).
