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.  

The JCV is an unaffiliated synagogue that uses Reform prayer books. Our full-time rabbi and full-time cantor lead Shabbat services each Friday evening, and also on holidays, festivals, and special occasions. They are always available for our members’ life cycle events. We encourage participation in services and celebrate traditional music with our choir, as part of our JCV worship.  

Throughout the year, we offer many diverse social events for our members to meet and mingle with other congregants that help in developing strong friendships. In times of need, we are there and take care of each other.

Learning and building our knowledge, as well as providing activities of interest, is a focus of the JCV. We engage in fellowship and outreach. We welcome interfaith and all other communities. Our building is a place of warmth and comfort and full of activity!
