2020 FJMC Zoom Webinars

We present FJMC online webinars to learn during these trying times.  If you don't see a subject which you'd like to learn about and discuss in a 'get together' with a group of men, even if they are thousands of miles away and in a different state or country, send an email to the coordinator of this initiative to Alan Budman,

In this year of the pandemic, you can still celebrate and enjoy Sukkot with family and guests, and with a little extra effort, you can virtually include many more at your table than you normally would. For the part of our Virtual Celebrations series focusing on Sukkot, the FJMC partnered with 2 for Seder, a non-profit founded in honor of Joyce Fienberg, one of the victims at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, by her daughter-in-law Marnie Fienberg to fight anti-semitism by including non-Jews in our celebrations. The FJMC conducted a webinar with Marnie and jointly prepared guides on all aspects of having a safe and meaningful Sukkot both at home and virtually, that you can find on our Virtual Celebrations webpage.

Temple Israel Men's Club
Annual (online) Congregational Breakfast


Mixing Politics and Investment:
Kosher or Treyf?


Sunday, October 25 
10:30 AM ET


Featuring David Webber
Boston University Professor of Law



Global warming, gender diversity, worker's rights, and similar issues used to be reserved for the voting booth and the courts. Increasingly, these issues are finding their way into corporate boardrooms and shareholder meetings. David will discuss the growing influence of political issues on investment and its future implications on our society.

The Congregational Breakfast will take place on Sunday, October 25 at 10:30 am EDT featuring David Webber, Boston University Professor of Law. 

As we will be participating online instead of eating a catered breakfast together,
the Men's Club will make a donation to feed those in need for every RSVP.

Thank you!  We hope to see you there!
