Humanistic Judaism celebrates Jewish life while foregoing appeals for divine intervention, instead putting our faith in human reason and human power as the best vehicles for improving the world.
Humanistic Judaism offers a connection to Jewish identity and community for people who identify as “just Jewish,” culturally Jewish, “Jew-ish,” “Jewish and . . .,” “half-Jewish,” multicultural, “not religious,” secular, humanistic, atheist and/or agnostic.
It is an approach to Judaism that enables people to say what they believe and believe what they say.
For more than fifty years, Humanistic Judaism has provided an inclusive home for Jews and their families, including multicultural households, LGBTQ+, partial Jewish ancestry, and those who have adopted Humanistic Judaism as their own – a home for all those who identify with the history, ethical values, culture, civilization, community, and fate of the Jewish people.
