TOHC Mission

Our mission is to be a spiritual, educational, and social home for our Jewish community and to enhance the lives of our congregants and community at large. As we embrace our Jewish traditions, we are able to support one another through times of sadness and joy as well as further the Jewish vision of worldwide justice and peace.

The Caring Community

Do you know a member of the congregation who is ill, grieving, or has had a life cycle event occur?     Please let us know.

The Caring committee is available to help our temple members in need.
We will provide occasional transportation to temple services and events and will assist ill members with grocery shopping and other small errands as needed.
Occasionally, we may make Shiva calls, hospital and home visits to those who are elderly or sick.

Since we are volunteers, we cannot provide these services on a regular basis, but if possible we will provide referrals to community agencies in the area as needed.

We are here to help you.
Please contact:
The Temple of the High Country 828-266-9777 or templeofthehighcountry@gmail.com

***Assistance will be provided if volunteers are available.***
