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 honor of a special occasion please contact Marcy at: asheville@kilwins.com
