Earlier today, there was a shooting at the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center with one fatality. Miami-Dade Police have confirmed it is being investigated as a domestic issue. The suspected gunman has been arrested, and police have indicated there is no known threat to the Jewish community.
Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s family.
Thankfully, years of drills and numerous safety protocols ensured the safety of our members, staff, and community.
The Michael-Ann Russell JCC is grateful to the Miami-Dade Police Department and all first responders who responded so quickly.
The MARJCC will resume normal operations tomorrow, April 4, 2022. However, as previously communicated, there are no group exercise classes or adult enrichment classes until 3:30 p.m. due to a previously scheduled conference.
