The Jewish Secular Community of Asheville started with a few like-minded people coming together to celebrate Jewish holidays, share Shabbat dinners in their homes and plan enjoyable, meaningful activities. Soon, through people reaching out to people, new transplants began to express interest in sharing in these experiences. The original members clarified their goals and developed a more formal organizational structure. A new Asheville Jewish community was born as an all-volunteer, non-profit organization.
