Welcome to JSCA

We may be looking for each other...

Are you seeking to be more in touch with your Jewish heritag 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.

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
7:00 PM First Friday of every month

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.

If you would like to sponsor an Oneg in the future contact Marcy Gallagher asheville@kilwins.com

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]

JSCA members have diverse interests and preferences and are constantly searching for enrichment opportunities.  We are providing information about educational and cultural events sponsored by other non-profit organizations within the broader Jewish community so our members can pursue their personal interests.  The inclusion of an event on the “Other Events in the Community” web-page represents neither endorsement nor promotion by JSCA.

This could be the beginning of a meaningful affiliation...
