The Jewish Secular Community of Asheville started with a few like-minded people who celebrated Jewish holidays together. The community grew by word of mouth, as others expressed interest in learning more about Secular Humanistic Judaism. As we grew, we developed a more formal organizational structure, and in 2012 the JSCA was founded as an all-volunteer, 501-C3 non-profit organization.

We celebrate Jewish Holidays and Shabbat Services in the Secular Humanistic tradition.
We commit Ourselves to Social Justice and to Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) by engaging in social action projects.
