Welcome to JSCA
A place to experience a warm and inviting community...
Enjoy and share your Jewish heritage with us!
The Jewish Secular Community of Asheville (JSCA) provides an inclusive, secular humanistic environment to learn and celebrate our rich traditions and history. Please come and be a guest at our monthly Shabbat services or at the next JSCA event and experience our community.
Join us now and feel the warmth of our community!
First Friday of every month (6:30 PM), excluding months when Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur or Passover occur.
Thanks to our Ritual Committee, we welcome the Shabbat 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.
