As an unaffiliated, egalitarian congregation, we have members who are reform, conservative, and other Jewish denominations. We do not discriminate based on race, gender, or sexual orientation. This mix has created a very unique situation at Seaside. Most visitors comment on how wonderful they feel the services are.
Normal Service Schedule is:
September through June - First Friday night of each month at 7:30 pm
September through June - Third Saturday morning of each month at 10 am
July & August - Weekly services - First 2 Friday nights of the month at 7:30 p.m. and last 2 Saturday mornings of the month at 10 a.m.
We also have services during all major holidays and festivals and some minor holidays.
See the calendar or the latest newsletter (About Us > Newsletter) for this month's schedule and articles about what is happening at SJC.

High Holy Day Schedule and Break-the-Fast
There is no charge for attending our services, nor are tickets required. We welcome all who want to join us to celebrate these holy days. Most services are held at Epworth United Methodist Church, which is down the street from Seaside. We also hold a community Break-the-Fast meal after Yom Kippur (advance reservations required). In late summer and early fall, click on the below link for a complete list of all HHD and fall Fesitival services and activities, and go to About Us > Newsletters to see our newsletter for information about how to buy a ticket for our Break-the-Fast meal.
As has been our tradition from our very start in 1997, we have a community Seder on the 2nd night of Passover. Advance ticket reservations are required. For more information, starting in February each year, click on the below link for how to buy tickets to attend the Seder.
Yahrzeit Wall and Cemetery
Seaside Jewish Community has a yahrzeit wall and cemetery plots available for members. Please check Giving > Yahrzeit for details on Yahrzeit plaques, and About Us > Cemetery Guidelines for more information about the cemetery.
