Who we are: The Men’s Club of Merrick Jewish Centre is a social organization dedicated to enhancing the life of the MJC community through a wide range of programs and activities. We are affiliated with the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs (http://fjmc.org/) and are open to all male members of the Congregation.
Why we do it: Our goal is to promote the spirit of Chaverim, Jewish camaraderie and brotherhood, to provide support to our Synagogue, to be active members of our community, to support Israel, and most importantly – to have fun! It’s also a great place for networking.
What we do: We do a lot! The Men’s Club organizes and sponsors an annual membership dinner, Synagogue Bar-b-que, and organizes the shul’s participation in the FJMC World Wide Wrap program. In addition to these, our other activities include:
- Construction of Synagogue Sukkah
- “Boys Night Out” Cigar Night
- Passover Wine Tasting Event
- Yom Hashoah Candle Distribution
- Spearheaded local efforts to collect and distribute supplies to those in need after Hurricane Sandy
How to get involved: A first year member of the MJC is automatically a member of the Men’s Club with no dues obligation for that year. Our annual dues for subsequent years are only $36. Brian Okun is the MJC Men’s Club President. Please feel free to contact him with questions, ideas, thoughts, suggestions, etc. [email protected].
