Boone is a lovely mountain community located near the Blue Ridge Parkway in western North Carolina. The Jewish residents of Boone, as well as members of the Jewish faith living in the surrounding hills and valleys, formed the local Jewish community. The small core of these residents keep weekly services throughout the year. During the summer months the number of attendees at these services swells dramatically as residents of Florida, and other southern communities, escape the heat in the cool mountains. Boone is also the home of Appalachian State University. Members of Hillel, the organization of Jewish students on campus, as well as AEPi, the Jewish men's fraternity, and other local college students, have also become an integral part of our congregation.
If you are visiting the area, come and join us at one of our services, or activities, when they resume at the temple since they are temporarily cancelled.
There will be services online. Information will be on the Home Page soon.
The Physical Address for The Temple of the High Country-Schaefer Jewish Community Center is, 1043 West King Street, Boone, NC which is on the Corner of West King Street and Poplar Grove Connector in Downtown Boone, NC.
