Secular Humanist Judaism

Secular Jews define Judaism as the history, culture, books, music, art, food, rituals and practices of the Jewish people. Secular Judaism, whether practiced through the reading of Jewish books, membership in a branch of Workmen’s Circle or attendance at a Secular Humanistic congregation, is an appealing option for many interfaith families, both for those families that do not believe in God and those looking for a religious space that does not discuss theology. The following is a list of helpful resources and links for interfaith families exploring secular Judaism.
