The primary objective of the Moses Montefiore Congregation Men’s Club is to provide fun social interaction for our adult male members, and other men from the Fox Cities Jewish Community. While our events are open to all members, we tend to focus on items of interest to the men in the congregation. On an as-needed basis, we also occasionally do useful projects, such as erecting the sukkah or organizing a Men’s Club-led Friday night service. But we are unapologetic about our social focus because it is an important element of building community.
Our Appleton synagogue club was re-started in 1994 because it was felt that the congregation needed more ways to encourage social interaction among members. The founding members were already overloaded with Synagogue-related administrative duties, so we enacted a single rule which has remained in a effect since 1994. The rule is: “we have no by-laws, no meeting minutes, no dues, no formal officers and no rules other than this one”.
Examples of recent events include bowling, Timber Rattlers baseball, Packers football (on TV) and breakfast gatherings. Upcoming events are posted on the Synagogue calendar.
