Our Core Values

NY Metro advocates for Jewish concerns by involving men on important matters and programming to the Jewish community. In this fashion, men start to work with a perfect strangers, only to bond as they share life stories and experiences. Magically, they connect to each other – through one or two degrees of separation. Wherever in his Jewish journey the men’s club member is men’s club will find a place for him.
