M.O.T WELCOMES ALL  WHO ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT CONTRIBUTING AND ADDING  TO THE M.O.T EXPERIENCE AND WHOM  TREASURE JUDAIC VALUES AND COMRADERY.  THERE ARE NO HALACHIC REQUIREMENTS AND NO LEVEL OF JUDAIC OBSERVANCE IS NEEDED. 

INTEGRITY

TREAT OTHERS WITH RESPECT AND COURTESY.  HONOR YOUR WORD, VALUE THE WORDS OF OTHERS, BE KIND AND CONSIDERATE, HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE, BE AUTHENTIC AND CREATE AUTHENTIC CONNECTIONS, TAKE A STAND, BE A FRIEND, DO WHAT YOU SAID YOU WOULD DO, CLEAR THE AIR, BE YOURSELF, SHARE, TELL THE TRUTH AND ACT WITH INTEGRITY.  

LEADERSHIP & PARTICIPATION

M.O.T MEMBERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE AS LEADERS AND CONTRIBUTORS TO THE M.O.T COMMUNITY.  AS AN M.O.T MEMBER YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY AND PLATFORM TO ENGAGE, INSPIRE AND SET THE TONE FOR AUTHENTIC CONNECTIVITY AND RELATEDNESS WITHIN OUR GROUP. LEAD A HIKE, CONDUCT A PANEL IN THE YOUR FIELD, TAKE A GROUP BACK TO THEIR HOME COUNTRY ON A TOUR, SHARE A RECIPE AT A COOKING CLASS, SERVE ON AN M.O.T COMMITTEE, VOLUNTEER AT AN EVENT.  M.O.T IS NOT A “SERVICE” TO BE CONSUMED. IT’S A MEMBER RUN PARTICIPATORY COMMUNITY THAT CREATES A UNIQUE ESPIRT DE CORP; AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONNECT WITH AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE ONES AROUND YOU IN AN AUTHENTIC WAY. 

Recruitment

NEW BLOOD IS THE LIFELINE OF THIS GROUP . A MEMBER LED COMMUNITY FLOURISHES BY THE QUALITY OF PEOPLE IT ATTRACTS. EACH AND EVERY MEMBER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR  THE DISCERNING RECRUITMENT OF OTHER QUALITY MEMBERS. UNCOVERING SUCH PEOPLE IS EASY, BECAUSE WE CROSS THEM IN EVERYDAY LIFE.  IT IS PERHAPS THE MOST IMPACTFUL GIFT YOU CAN GIVE TO OUR M.O.T COMMUNITY. WE LEARN MOST FROM THOSE WHOM WE SURROUND OURSELVES WITH. 

FRATERNAL

M.O.T  SEEKS TO IMBUE A  MEMBERSHIP CULTURE THAT EMBODIES A FRATERNAL CONCERN FOR ITS MEMBERS. CREATE POSSIBILITIES SHARING A JOB LEAD, OR SETTING UP A COUPLE ( A SHITTACH) TO THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO YOU AT A DINNER, CAN CHANGE A LIFE EASIER THAN WRITING A CHECK HELPING RESTORE RHINOCEROS HABITAT IN BOTSWANA OR PLANTING ANOTHER TREE. REPEATED CONTACT AND MULTIPLE  SHARED EXPERIENCES CREATES FAMILIARITY. FAMILIARITY CREATES TRUST. TRUST CREATES FRIENDS. WE CELEBRATE OUR MEMBER TO MEMBER MITZVAHS AT ALL OUR GROUP DINNERS.

Social Impact

M.O.T MEMBERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO SHARE AND ENGAGE MEMBERS IN PHILANTHROPIC AND COMMUNITY SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES. AT MOT WE VALUE TIKKUN OLAM  TO THOSE LOOKING FOR A WAY TO GIVE BACK AND WHO HAVEN’T FOUND SUCH A PASSION, OUR RABBI, GUIDES YOU TO FIND ONE, THAT SPEAKS TO YOUR SOUL, WHETHER THAT CAUSE IS JEWISH OR NOT.

Spirituality 

& Ritual

M.O.T ENCOURAGES YOU TO EXPLORE BOTH JEWISH AND NON JEWISH RITUALS. MEDITATION, YOGA, KABBALAH, BUDDHISM AND OTHER TRADITIONS HAVE MUCH TO TEACH US ALL. M.O.T EMBRACES ALL JEWISH RITUAL AND HEAVY ON VALUES AND FOLLOW THRU. 

RESPECT DIVERSITY

M.O.T MEMBERS HAIL FROM DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS AND HAVE ONE MAIN THING IN COMMON; A DEEP CONNECTION TO COMMUNITY.  EACH MEMBER HAS A UNIQUE GIFT FOR YOU TO RECEIVE AND EXPLORE. GENDER INEQUALITY, RACISM AND AGEISM ARE NOT ONLY INAPPROPRIATE, BUT ARE SELF LIMITING. BE OPEN TO EXPERIENCING NEW VIEWPOINTS AND PERSPECTIVES WITHIN THE M.O.T COMMUNITY. 

SELF SUPPORTING

M.O.T IS A SELF SUPPORTING ORGANIZATION DEPENDED ON MEMBERSHIP FEES, NOT ON MEGA-DONORS. MAINTAINING EXCELLENCE OF ANY COMMUNITY REQUIRES  TOP NOTCH MANAGEMENT, STAFF, AND SYSTEMS. EVENTS REVENUE BREAK EVEN, IF LUCKY. YOUR MEMBERSHIP FEES SUPPORTS THE ORGANIZATION. OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR WORKS HARD TO GUIDE THE COMMUNITY. IF YOU’VE BEEN TO BURNING MAN IT COSTS $500 FOR 5 DAYS. ANNUALLY YPO COSTS $10,000, SOHO HOUSE $2,500, EQUINOX $1800, AND LANDMARK $2,000.  MOT IS VERY REASONABLE BECAUSE ITS NOT “A SERVICE” IT’S A MEMBER RUN COMMUNITY.

A GREATER SENSE OF PURPOSE AND LOVE

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A GREATER SENSE OF PURPOSE AND MORE LOVE IN YOUR LIFE, FOCUS ON IMPLEMENTING THE ABOVE 9 VALUES INSIDE THE M.O.T COMMUNITY, AND THEN  TAKE ON THE LARGER WORLD. GREATER PURPOSE AND REAL LOVE WILL VERY SOON FIND YOU.
