I just returned to Florida from the Quad Region Retreat at Camp Zeke in the Poconos where nearly 50 men from the NNJR, Middle Atlantic, NY Metro, and Hudson Valley regions of the FJMC gathered together in brotherhood and ruach.

It was a great time to daven, eat, drink, and schmooze with old friends and new alike.

The many highlights included participatory services, passionate davening, singing loud, proud in spontaneous multi-part harmony, exploring the bucolic grounds of Camp Zeke and just hanging out with the guys, talking, connecting, bonding, eating, drinking and learning, together. FJMC also introduced a new Club training module on Diversity and Inclusion.

Business meetings on Zoom are nice, but nothing can replace face to face interaction with my friends, family and Men’s Club Brothers. The hugs, the laughs, the tears; I missed those guys.

Florida Region FJMC is committed to the growth and success of our growing statewide network of Jewish Men’s Clubs and Brotherhoods. In the coming months we will be hosting a series of live Regional meetings, Club Leadership training sessions and Hearing Men’s Voices programs throughout Florida.
