Society for Humanistic Judaism Affirms Human Responsibility

As members of the Society for Humanistic Judaism:

  • We seek solutions to human conflicts that respect the freedom, dignity, and self-esteem of every human being. We make ethical decisions based on our assessment of the consequences of our actions.
  • We believe that it is human beings who have the responsibility for solving human problems. We are committed, in the enduring Jewish tradition of support for social action and social progress, to community service and actions for social justice. We each take responsibility for our own behavior, and all of us take collective responsibility for the state of our world.

Criteria for Selection of Issues

Are we advocating evidence-based policy solutions that promote the core ethical values of freedom, dignity and self-esteem for every human being? This is a prerequisite.

If so, then the resolution must relate to at least one of the below criteria:

1. separation of church and state, OR

2. Jewish identity/culture, OR

3. a position with which an overwhelming majority of the SHJ are likely to agree.
