What to do if there is illness in the family

Please let us know if a family member or fellow congregant is ill or hospitalized by contacting the synagogue office at (941) 955-8121. Our clergy try to visit members and their close relatives in the hospital and healing prayers from the bimah will be recited.

What to do if a death occurs

When a loved one dies please call our congregational phone number, 941-955-8121. There is an emergency number available twenty-four hours a day. The rabbi will be notified and speak to you promptly about making the proper arrangements. We also recommend that you might consider making pre-arrangements in which case the clergy will be pleased to assist you. Our synagogue prides itself on being extremely sensitive and caring at these times of great need.
