Mountain Synagogue is an unaffiliated Jewish Synagogue which began in Franklin, North Carolina in 1979. It was started by a group of retirees who had vacation homes in Western North Carolina and local year-round residents. Conducting services, planning social events and administering the Synagogue are all accomplished by volunteers.
Our congregation meets in the social hall of St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church on Roller Mill Road in Franklin, NC. Shabbat services are held regularly, as well as other holiday services. We commemorate the Jewish Holy days with services and celebrations year-round. The schedule of services is posted on our website.
Our Passover Seder, Chanukah latke party and Chavurah meetings are popular events with our congregation as well as the community at large. A women’s group meets monthly in private homes and in the Church social hall.
