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 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 both our traditions and our history, and discuss current issues throughout the year. You're invited to be our guest at our monthly Shabbat services or at the next JSCA event and judge for yourself.

Vision statement
An inclusive community valuing secular humanism and our Jewish cultural heritage.

Mission Statement
Educate, celebrate and nurture our members based upon the principles of humanistic Judaism.


Shabbat Services
7:00PM First Friday of every month
A warm hug, a place to connect​ with friends (or make new ones)​, a safe place to sit quietly, to meditate, to grieve and to celebrate life. All these things can be ours when we gather to welcome Shabbat. Thanks to the work of our Ritual Committee, we celebrate Secular Shabbat on the first Friday of every month. We look forward to sharing​ thoughtful​ blessings and songs with you. There will be a delicious Oneg after the gathering, providing us with an informal opportunity to visit with one another.

Location:  Abiding Savior Lutheran Church,  801 Charlotte Highway, (74A), 1.5 miles south of the CVS/Ingles next to Cool Mountain Realty. Get Map and Directions [HERE]
