Schedule of Services 5782

Although the COVID pandemic is still worrisome in Southwest Florida, Naples Jewish Congregation will return to indoor Shabbat services in the Universal Universalist Church Sanctuary on Friday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m.  The congregation's  Board of Directors will soon decide whether services will return  to the UU outdoor patio, which is subject to seasonal cold spells, or remain indoors for the remainder of the season.  Please watch your e-mail or this Web site for details.

Whatever the location, Rabbi Howard Herman and our music makers, cantorial soloist Jane Galler and musical director Alla Gorelick, will there to lead us. Most services will not be streamed online. However, services on November 5, December 24 and February 2 will be available online only through YouTube and ZOOM.

What follows is the 5786 (2021-2022) calendar. All services in red will be in-person. Vaccination and masks are required to attend. Services in green type will be online only.

Meanwhile, it's time to start planning -- we need the whole congregation's participation to return to the New Normal, whatever that may be. In particular, consider picking a date to sponsor an Oneg Shabbat. There are plenty of opportunities.
