Welcome to JSCA

We may be looking for each other...

Are you seeking to be more in touch with your Jewish heritage in a comfortable, friendly setting with other thoughtful Jews to whom you can relate to on a spiritual, intellectual, and social level?

The Jewish Secular Community of Asheville (JSCA) provides a warm, inclusive, secular, and humanistic environment in which to celebrate holidays, learn about  our traditions and  history, and to discuss current issues throughout the year. You are invited to be our guest at our monthly Shabbat services or at the next JSCA event and judge for yourself.

COVID-19 Safety Protocols

As we navigate the ever-changing situation with the COVID-19 Delta variant, the health and safety of our membership is our first priority. 

To ensure everyone’s safety, the following protocols will be in place for the foreseeable future at JSCA events:

  • 1)   Everyone attending should be fully vaccinated, including guests.
  • 2)   Mask wearing is recommended. 
  • 3)   At this time, we ask that no children be in attendance.
  • 4)   Members will check off their names and guests will print their names on a sign-in sheet upon entering.
  • 5)   High Holiday services will be virtual, via Zoom.

We offer Shabbat services the first Friday of every month at 7:00


Shabbat Services

First Friday of every month (7:00 PM), excluding months when Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Passover occur. 

Thanks to our Ritual Committee, we welcome the Sabbath with a warm hug, a place to connect with friends and make new ones, a place to sit quietly and safely, a place to meditate, a place to grieve and a place to celebrate life. After our Service we have an Oneg that provides us with an informal opportunity to visit with one another. We look forward to sharing thoughtful blessings and songs with our members.

 JSCA has been hard at work developing programs to sustain our members during this difficult time. We have added a service to pick up groceries and drugs for our highest risk members, started telephoning members who may feel isolated, posted in the members’ section of the website a list of regularly updated resources, and initiated a popular members’ online chatroom. 

Members who wish to visit or revisit these resources and programs need to log in to the Members’ Section.

If you are not a current member, but you are interested in learning more about us, click through our website. Then send us an email (See a link below) and we’ll get back to you. At JSCA we are here for each other because we care for each other
