Step into the Shul at the Chabad House of Asheville,

one of Western North Carolina's most welcoming Jewish environments. You will find the atmosphere casual, the services traditional, and the mood uplifting. Our Shul is a budding family, with participants as diverse as the Asheville Jewry. 

 

From so many differentwalks of life, congregants come together to explore their Jewish roots, learn, and make spiritual advancement; they come for the social network and warm friendships that are ann inevitable part of this vibrant, growing community.

The prayer book is bilingualand various English readings are included during the weekly Shabbat service. Song and commentary add meaning and participation to the prayers. An important part of Shabbat is the Kiddush Luncheon that follows the Shabbat morning services, where friendships are created and nurtured and everyone's special occasions are celebrated.

When the High Holidays come around, Chabad makes sure that everyone feels right at home. Traditional prayers, song, and reflection incorporate modern themes so that first-time, occasional, and veteran synagogue-goers all experience a sense of fulfillment. A special junior congregation caters specifically to the up and coming generation, so that even the young congregants can enjoy a meaningful and personalized experience.

 

"We look forward to coming to Shul to celebrate Shabbat withour family and friends. The synagogue environment reflects love, respect, and concern for each individual. We feel it every time we walk through the doorway. Our children think of Chabad as part of their family... we are blessed to be a part of this congregation."
