SHJ@50: Movement-Wide Celebration and Summit
Celebrating Culture, Advancing the Movement
The Birmingham Temple – Farmington Hills, MI
April 26-28, 2019


[Schedule] [Register/Sponsor] [Book Hotel]


In 1969, Secular Humanistic Judaism became a movement when its founder Rabbi Sherwin Wine of the Birmingham Temple joined with two other communities to form the Society for Humanistic Judaism (SHJ).

To mark 50 years of SHJ, let’s celebrate the accomplishments of our movement’s first half-century and plan for the next 50 years!

Come together with current, past, and future leaders from Humanistic Judaism communities throughout the U.S. and Canada for a weekend of joyous celebration, dynamic speakers, and meaningful learning while we rekindle old friendships, create new ones, and generate the next big ideas.

COME HELP US CELEBRATE AND SHAPE THE JEWISH FUTURE. Much more information to follow!
