In the light of the ongoing public-health crisis, our Board of Directors have reluctantly decided that prudence dictates we must add our Shabbat observances to the list of other JCMI programs already cancelled. Both Kabbalat Shabbat worship on Friday and Torah-study on Saturday will be suspended, effectively immediately, until further notice.
In the interests of retaining some measure of normality, and as a gesture of support to those observing yahrtseits this week, Rabbi Gross will be conducting remote-worship Fridays at 7:30PM, as well as Torah-study at 9:30AM on Saturday morning.
Virtual attendance at either Shabbat worship Friday or Torah-study Saturday is available by “joining” Zoom meeting ID 944-816-2391 (not a phone number, don't call it!). Please call the JCMI office for the passcode to enter the Zoom meeting.
Note that you will need to install Zoom beforehand, either as a free smartphone app or as an equally free software on your computer desktop.
You will also need to download and print out ahead ahead of time the text of the special “distance-davvening” prayerbook that will be used on Friday night, and the Torah-study handout for Saturday morning, which you can access by clicking the buttons below.
The Jewish Congregation of Marco Island is concerned for the safety and well-being of their congregants, guests, and staff. In an abundance of caution, due to the current COVID-19 virus, JCMI has cancelled all special events for all participants through June 30, 2020.
The Jewish Congregation of Marco Island is the spiritual home to more than 150 families of diverse ages and backgrounds, welcoming both permanent and part time congregants to its open-door policy.
In 1982 a classified advertisement in a local newspaper attracted a nucleus of 60 enthusiastic and dedicated people who evolved into today’s active volunteers who offer and participate in a wide variety of stimulating educational, cultural, and social activities. Although primarily an adult community, the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island has the staff and flexibility to offer children’s programs and tutoring as required. The current professional staff includes Rabbi Mark Wm. Gross and Cantorial Soloist Hari Jacobsen, a president and board of directors.
An overview outline to the Friday Night Service
Shabbat Worship begins at 7:30 PM Friday, year-round. Torah study with the Rabbi is held Saturday mornings at 9:30 AM, September through April. Shabbat Shachrit follows Torah-study at 10:30 AM in January, February, and March, and on the first Saturday of those months worship is followed by a complimentary Qiddush luncheon.
For the benefit of those who may not be available to attend on Saturday mornings, an abbreviated Torah service is featured in our Shabbat evening worship, on the last Friday night of every month September through April.
