The Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs Seaboard Region serves Maryland, Virginia and Dover, Delaware. The FJMC Seaboard Region exists to serve the twenty-four Men’s Clubs and Brotherhoods in the region, which range from Delaware to Baltimore, through the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, and down to Richmond and the Tidewater area of Virginia. Over 2,600 men belong to these clubs.
FJMC is divided into 15 Regions across the United States and Canada. Each Region is the direct link between the FJMC and its member clubs. Not only do the Regions implement various FJMC programs, but they also run their own retreats, honoree functions, newsletters, and other activities for the benefit of their members.
FJMC has also developed several programs for use at the club level – men’s issue programs, Yom Hashoah memorial candle, the World Wide Wrap and encouragement of the use of tefillin and Men’s Club Shabbat. Individual members receive discounted prices on all FJMC books and materials, many of which provide instruction on enhancing Jewish observance in the synagogue and at home, including Hebrew Literacy, specific holiday observance materials (“Art of Jewish Living”), and assistance in leading Havdalah and Maariv services.
