On Friday evening January 5, 2018 the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island will honor, at a Shabbat service, 15 present nonagenarian members, as well as seven who will achieve that status in 2018, and one member turning 100 in April.
Most of these members remain active in our regular JCMI programs. The combined years of membership with JCMI since its inception is 522 years!
The service will be led by Rabbi Mark Gross and Cantorial Soloist Hari Jacobsen.
There is an old Yiddish expression that one offers to someone who has reached this status that translates to, “You should live to be 120!” We certainly hope so!
The JCMI is located at 991 Winterberry Drive, Marco Island. Shabbat service begins at 8 PM.
