About Us

Charleston's Jewish community is:

  • one of the oldest Jewish communities in North America.
  • religiously diverse – from Reform to Orthodox and anything in between.
  • geographically dispersed – we're everywhere in the Charleston area, from Isle of Palms to Seabrook Island, from West Ashley to Mount Pleasant.
  • a diverse population – everything from young professionals to retirees, singles, to empty nesters.


In our community, in spite of our diversity, we are bound together by a shared history and traditions. One that pursues social justice and human rights and lives by rich traditions of advocacy, education, and taking responsibility for one another.
