Put some SPICE in your life!

We Learn Together

Join us on the first and third Wednesday of the month for SPICE-In, a lunch and learn format including morning presentations by clergy and paralleling afternoon presentations by Charlotte area professionals. There’s always plenty of time for socializing.

We Have Fun Together

Visit great venues with SPICE Outs, which take SPICE offsite to museums, theaters, and other locations providing an atmosphere for exceptional learning experiences and fabulously fun times. (Registrations required.

We Care for Each Other

Provide companionship with SPICE’s Seniors Visiting Seniors program which trains and supplies volunteers who offer companionship to shut-ins. Providing some much-needed conversation, a friendly face, encouraging words, and quiet listening are incredible mitzvot offered by our volunteers. (Contact Barbara Phillips.)

We Act Together

Perform Tikkun Olam/Repairing the World

SPICE is a community partner with Sterling Elementary School. Raising funds, providing enhancements to students’ experiences, rewards for achieving goals, and working one-on-one with students to elevate learning experiences are the hallmarks of SPICE’s relationship with Sterling Elementary. (Contact Michael Norman.)

SPICE participates annually in May at TBE’s Mitzvah Day. Preparing educational kits that are used throughout the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system is another way SPICE lends a hand to the community. (Contact Tracey Lederer)

We Pray Together

Three times a year we come together at a Shabbat evening service followed by a Pot Luck Dinner. Nothing says community like a jointly made and shared meal.
