About Us

A Welcoming Community

While we value tradition, we also consider contemporary ideas. We are a community where you explore Jewish teaching and practice, and a place where friends and families learn together. People are drawn to the special feel of our community and bring their broad range of backgrounds to share. 

In 1981, the Jewish Congregation of Venice (JCV) was founded on the principles of friendship and a place for local residents to practice their religion. From a small group of individuals who wished to share their Jewish roots and values, the JCV has become a welcoming, vibrant community. We are a congregation of people from throughout the United States and other countries.

Memorial Park

A Holocaust Memorial Garden, Memorial Park, and Columbarium are found on the JCV campus.

The Memorial Park was part of a 2019 beautification project, which included the addition of new arbors and plantings. The Memorial Park provides space for the interment of those who have been members of the JCV for a minimum of three years, their siblings, or their children. Applications for burial space and notification of death should be sent to
