SJC Hanukkah Celebration 5783

We will be having a Hanukkah celebration on Sunday Dec 18, from 5-8pm. We hope you can join us to celebrate this super-fun Jewish holiday! Jeff and his gang will be cooking up yummy latkes, and there will be an activity table for kids. Please bring a dish to share, and a menorah, if you can.

Please read more about it here. We hope you can make it!

Looking for a secular Jewish summer camp for your child?

Camp Miriam, on beautiful Gabriola Island, BC, might just be what you are looking for! Camp Miriam offers a secular Jewish program, for children completing grades 2 – 11.  Through creative experiences, and in an inclusive, youth-led community, campers receive a value based education and, at the same time, gain knowledge about Israel, Jewish history, Hebrew, social justice and the environment. And, of course, there are the usual camp activities like swimming, sports, arts & crafts, camping trips, canoeing, kayaking, Israeli dancing, and music.

If you would like to hear more about Camp Miriam, you are invited to join some Seattle area Camp Miriam families and staff for a potluck Shabbat Dinner for the family on Friday, December 2nd at 6:00 PM.  Seattle Location: please email for details.

For more information and to RSVP, please email

We look forward to meeting you and sharing our magical Camp Miriam with you.

SJC Education Director Jerid Morisco published in Humanistic Judaism magazine

SJC's Shalom Sunday School Eduction Director Jerid Morisco has had an article published in Society for Humanistic Judaism's Humanistic Judaism magazine! We encourage you to give it a read.

Click this link to view a "preview edition" of the magazine in .pdf format. Scroll down to page 16, and read the article Judaism, It’s All Ours; Why I Wear a Humanistic Tallit.

When you're done, take a look at the rest of the magazine!

Remember that with a membership to Secular Jewish Circle of Puget Sound, you get complimentary membership to Society for Humanistic Judaism, which includes this quarterly magazine.

Way to go Jerid!

Happy High Holidays!

We hope everyone had a celebratory Rosh Hashanah and a contemplative Yom Kippur. This week has been Sukkot, and we encourage everyone to find a sukkah to eat a meal in and enjoy. Unfortunately, SJC wasn't able to put together a Sukkot event this year ... maybe next year!
