Introduction to the new Jewish Comics Library of Seattle!

Jeff Treistman with his Jewish Comics Library

Following a small community Havdalah he hosted for our community at his home on November 18th, Board member Jeff gave us an introduction to his side project: The new Jewish Comics Library of Seattle (JCLS). The Library consists of a huge collection of graphic novels by, and about, Jews. What you see here is only a small selection of its vast collection.

For more information about the project, and to borrow books from the Library, check out their online catalog, or contact JCLS at

If you're interested in hosting a small community Shabbat or Havdalah, or would like to spotlight a project/host a discussion for our community, register on our Shabbat page.

SJC at the Fremont Fair!

Happy Summer!

We said goodbye to another successful year at Shalom Sunday School, and another year of secular humanistic Jewish holidays and events. Summer is right around the corner, and it looks like it's going to be a warm one.

The SJC steering committee is busy planning for next year. If you have an interest in helping to plan, we urge you to consider taking a leadership role in this organization. We need folks to help with: outreach; digital marketing; committee leadership and organization; and most importantly, general SJC leadership.

If interested, please email us at

Coming soon: info about a summer picnic. Stay tuned!
