Welcome to JSCA

We may be looking for each other...

Are you seeking to be more in touch with your Jewish heritage, in a comfortable, friendly setting with other thoughtful Jews to whom you can relate 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 both our traditions and our history, and discuss current issues throughout the year. You're invited to be our guest at our monthly Shabbat services or at the next JSCA event and judge for yourself.

Three bubbes sitting on a park bench.

The first one lets out a heartfelt "Oy!"

A few minutes later, the second bubbe sighs deeply and says "Oy vey!"

A few minutes after that, the third lady brushes away a tear and moans, "Oy veyizmir!"

To which the first bubbe replies: "I thought we agreed we weren't going to talk about our children!"
