Jewish Community of the Palouse is a welcoming community serving Jewish families and individuals in the Palouse and surrounding regions of northern Idaho and eastern Washington. The JCP offers cultural, religious and social activities for Jewish individuals and families living in Pullman, Moscow and the surrounding areas of Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho including Washington State University and the University of Idaho.  We are an unaffiliated community that is open to all members of the Jewish faith. 


It is our goal that Jews of all backgrounds - whether Orthodox, Conservative, Reform or Reconstructionist - feel comfortable participating in our community, along with their families.  

Our activities may vary year-to-year, but include High Holiday services, Sukkot, Hanukkah, and Purim celebrations. We have a monthly Friday Shabbat service, a monthly Saturday Torah study, and a Sunday School program for children in K-8th grade.

From September 2000 through October 2002 six women from the Jewish Community of the Palouse created a special quilt, reflecting our heritage, to be hung and used as a focal point at our ceremonies and celebrations.
