A Message from our President

Welcome to the Seaboard Region FJMC’s website. We hope you will find it interesting and informative. The website is a key means of keeping our Seaboard clubs and members in touch with one another and the larger organization. In a nutshell, it brings us together as a community and provides information about us, our goals, organization, objectives and bylaws. We hope you will use it, enjoy it and make visiting the website a habit. Everything you need to know about our clubs, our region and the FJMC organization is right here at your fingertips. Enjoy!!

The Seaboard Region

The Seaboard Region is comprised of 23 Men’s Clubs and Brotherhoods from the Tidewater area of Virginia to Northern Virginia, from Southern Maryland to Washington DC and its suburbs and the upper Seaboard area including Baltimore and Harrisburg. Our Clubs organize programs at the synagogue level to provide meaning to their local communities.

Our club’s members come from all walks of life representing all age groups and a range of interests. As a region we pull together on many International programs. From our yellow candle program, to Hearing Men’s voices, to World Wide Wrap and Men’s Club Shabbat. These programs allow us to come together to be part of a true brotherhood.

If you would like more information about our clubs/brotherhoods, please click the “Affiliated Men’s Clubs” link.

The Seaboard region is operated by a board of Directors consisting of an executive board and the Presidents of the various clubs. We also have a past presidents council that lend their institutional knowledge.
