Upcoming Event

Spring Meeting Cancellation

The JHSSC places the health and wellbeing of our members and event attendees above all else.

Out of an abundance of caution, and in light of the CDC’s recommended 8-week moratorium on public events, the scope of which includes our May 2-3 meeting in Columbia, JHSSC leadership have decided to cancel our Spring meeting celebrating the Jewish Women of the Palmetto State

In light of this cancellation, the JHSSC’s Spring magazine is now an especially valuable resource celebrating just a few of our matriarchs. We urge you to read it at your leisure, and hope that you will encourage others to do the same. The digital version is linked below.

We look forward to seeing you, in good health, very soon.
