About the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island
The Jewish Congregation of Marco Island is an inclusive reform Temple who welcomes all. Our doors are always open to welcome those who wish to worship with us.
Our JCMI members have a saying, "Once you enter our doors, you become family." These are not just words, but how our members feel.
Our little shop offers a beautiful variety of gifts for every occasion.
For nearly thirty years the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island, or “JCMI” as we refer to it, has been a thriving congregation and the central hub of Jewish life in the Marco Island area. Although we are a reform congregation, we are inclusive to all. We take pride in our Jewish heritage that includes the richness and traditions of the reform, conservative and orthodox roots of our members.
JCMI conducts Shabbat services every Friday evening and seasonal Saturday morning Torah study and worship services. Holiday services include Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Of course we also host life cycle events such as Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. And we offer our own separate Jewish Memorial Garden at the Marco Island Cemetery.
Jewish couples moving to the Marco Island area will find JCMI a welcoming congregation. For many of our members, JCMI has provided the nucleus of their social and spiritual life in southwest Florida. Newcomers to the area, especially, will be delighted to experience the warm embrace of our congregation. We love quickly turning “newcomers” into “old friends”.
So, whether you’re visiting, vacationing, a part time resident or a new resident of our community, please join us for a Friday evening Shabbat service beginning at 8PM every week. And enjoy our Oneg Shabbat following the service. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you and demonstrate how very special our congregation is.
Come…be a part of Marco’s Jewish community. We need you and look forward to meeting you!
Jewish Congregation of Marco Island
“Sing a new song unto the Lord.” That’s what we read in the 96th Psalm, and that’s what we do at the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island. Music is an integral part of our everyday temple life. Whether you come to attend services, lectures, classes, concerts, or social events, we look forward to meeting, getting to know, worshipping with, and working beside you.
While we are most predominantly a Reform congregation, our members’ backgrounds include Reform, Conservative, Orthodox and Reconstructionist. Therefore, our choices of musical settings mirror that rainbow of interpretations. Whether you love to sing along, never sign along (but love to listen), sing off tune – whatever- we welcome you. We welcome you with traditional settings, contemporary settings, and Nusach. We even take requests.
Not only do we sing a new song unto the Lord, but we sing unto the Lord together. We hope you will join us, as we look forward to praying, studying, and kibitzing with you at the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island.
