The FJMC Sefer Haphtorah scroll was commissioned by the FJMC and was written by one of the finest scribal groups in Israel. The scroll contains all the Haphtorah chanted during the year. It has the outward appearance of a Torah scroll but, unlike the Torah, has the vowels and the trop cantillation, which facilitate chanting. Since it was first unveiled during the 2003 FJMC Biennial Convention in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the FJMC Sefer Haphtorah scroll has travelled around North America to Men's Clubs and Brotherhoods, to regional retreats and to FJMC conventions. It has been used in synagogues from West Coast to East Coast, and from Florida to Canada. The scroll creates a sense of pride and accomplishment among the member clubs and provides opportunities for them to highlight FJMC activities for members of their congregations.

The FJMC Biennial Convention responds to these challenges on an individual, gender, family, community and Movement basis.
