Men of all generations are invited to be become active members of the Men of Fairmount Temple.

They sponsor the Sunday Morning Forum series featuring an array of distinguished speakers; special events, and social functions. During Chanukah, the Men of Fairmount Temple distribute menorahs to first graders in the Religious School and during Passover they host a popular Interfaith Seder which allows members of other faiths to learn more about the meaning of Passover.

Through its affiliation with the Jewish Chautauqua Society, the educational arm of the Men of Reform Judaism, the Men of Fairmount Temple support interfaith understanding and education on college campuses. The Mitzvah Corps holds monthly social programs with entertainment and refreshments for the residents at Montefiore. The membership also supports Fairmount Temple and other Constituent groups in their many special programs.
On several Sunday mornings during the year (and occasionally on a Sunday evening), the group hosts a Sunday Forum featuring prominent local speakers on a wide-range of topics, from science to music. These talks are free and open to all. RSVPs are not needed. Follow them on Facebook to learn about upcoming talks or other events. Click here for their calendar of events.
