- About Us
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.
On this website you can learn how SHJ:
We keep the best parts of Judaism — meaningful lifecycle events, rituals to foster connectedness to the natural universe and to humankind, learning, laughter, ethics, holiday celebrations, and so much more — while only ever saying what we believe and never saying what we don’t believe.
Become a part of this honest expression of Judaism that has worked for tens of thousands of households over the past 50 years, and help amplify Humanistic Judaism’s voice to 21st Century Jewry and the world.
