Fremont Fair 2024 & looking ahead to 5785!

Despite the rocky geopolitical climate, we had an amazing turnout at Fremont Fair this year! We had double the booth volunteers compared to last year and had many thought-provoking conversations about the importance of the separation of church and state, what it means to be a Jew, and how we can best support and give back to our communities. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who stopped by to say hi or help us staff the booth, and to everyone who saw our booth and looked us up to learn more or engage our community. Welcome! We're fortunate to have you with us and hope you find meaning in our programming!

On Saturday, July 6th, we'll be holding our annual planning meeting for 5785. Once we have a rough schedule planned, we will post it here on the home page, alongside our updated membership and Sunday School pricing. Anything you want us to discuss or take into consideration when planning for next year? Shoot us an email at info@secularjewishcircle.org and let us know! Your feedback shapes this community.

See you all in 5785!

SJC Passover Seder was epic!

 

SJC's Passover Seder and potluck dinner on Sunday, April 28th was a resounding success! Board members Jeff and Diamond did a fantastic job leading everyone in the reading of the Haggadah. We booked an absolutely lovely venue for Passover this year in the Northlake neighborhood of Seattle that was a huge hit among attendees; we'll certainly be rebooking for 5785 programming!

SJC Movie Night revival!

SJC was pleased to organize a trial movie night revival this year (an event type we hadn't been able to engage since pre-pandemic): A group attendance to the limited theatrical release of the Canadian indie film, Irena's Vow at Regal Cinema Thornton Place on Tuesday, April 16th.

The movie follows the true story of Irena Gut, who sheltered a group of Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland during WW2. It was tough to watch at times, but the Holocaust is a critical piece of our history whose stories we need to keep alive. Thanks to all who were able to make it to this showing with us!

If you missed this event but would like to see the film, it's now streaming on Amazon Prime.
