NEW TEMPLE POLICIES
Because of increased costs of operating a building, dues are being raised to $175 from the current $125.

The Temple of the High Country, a Reform Congregation is located in downtown Boone, close to Appalachian State University. It is a stop on the route of AppalCart, Boone’s free public transportation system. Its accessibility makes it an ideal location for residents, faculty and students. The congregation encompasses many surrounding communities, including Banner Elk, Beech Mountain, Blowing Rock, Jefferson, Lenoir, Linville Ridge, Newland, Pineola, Seven Devils, Sugar Mountain and Valle Crucis. There is ample parking. Boone is a central point for Watauga, Avery, Ashe, Wilkes, and Caldwell Counties.
The Temple of the High Country/Schaefer Jewish Community Center houses events enjoyed by Hillel, which is the ASU campus Jewish organization, Jewish symposiums, film festivals and community events. Bonnie and Jamie Schaefer have generously contributed $1,000,000 as the “seed money” to make this happen. Please join us for services on Friday evenings at 7:00.
