Membership

We at the Secular Jewish Circle of Puget Sound endeavor to be Seattle's home for secular Jews. To this end, we have brought you secular holiday programming since 1995, including throughout the pandemic, and are pleased to announce the return of fully in-person services. In addition to our standard holiday programming and Shalom Sunday School programming, in the coming year (5784), we're looking to expand our services by resuming monthly community Shabbats, resuming monthly adult discussion groups, and increasing collaborations with other local Jewish organizations.

These events serve to bring the Puget Sound's secular Jewish community together. We are a community-driven and volunteer-run organization, so please let us know what programming you'd like to see, or become involved in, in the upcoming year, even if you don't plan on becoming a member. Come join the circle!
