About the Society for Humanistic Judaism

The Society for Humanistic Judaism (SHJ) is the congregational and community-organizing arm of the Humanistic Jewish movement in North America.

SHJ offers a way to celebrate Jewish life for those who identify as cultural, secular, humanistic, atheist/agnostic/freethinker, “just Jewish,” “spiritual not religious,” “recovering from religion,” Jew-ish, Jew-curious, part-Jewish…and our friends, family, and allies.

Established in 1969, SHJ is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has helped tens of thousands of households across multiple generations find meaning in Jewish culture, holiday celebrations, lifecycle events, ritual, and community.

We welcome all who are interested in exploring an interest in Secular Humanistic Judaism.
