HuJews is the Humanistic Judaism youth movement for teens and college students. HuJews provides resources for Humanistic Jewish youth groups, college students, and campus havurot (small groups). The HuJews Conclave, an annual teen and college conference, welcomes youth from all over North America for a weekend of social service and connection.
All B Mitzvah students are sent a gift from the HuJews with an invitation for the next conclave. The current gift is a phone wallet.
To participate in a HuJews event, become involved with other Humanistic Jewish youth, or help support the HuJews Youth Movement, contact Anna Goldberg.
“I was a little nervous for my first conclave because I didn’t know how many of my friends would come or what exactly to expect. But I went, and I had a RIDICULOUS amount of fun. My friends were there, plus I made a bunch of new ones. I can’t wait until the next one!”
“I met new people and got closer to the friends I came with. This year will be my fifth conclave. I wouldn’t stop going if you paid me.”
“I was sort of pushed into my first conclave by a multitude of different sources – my parents, teachers, friends and was tentative about going my first time. But I had an AMAZING time. For the first time, I was able to meet other Humanistic Jews my own age and we had a great experience. It is because of conclave that we were able to start a youth group at my temple and keep that momentum going.”
“Of course traveling around the U.S. and Canada is fun and getting to see new places is always a perk, but the real reason I come back every year is for the relationships that are made. To be with other HUJEWS when it felt like you were the only one out there is a huge deal, and I love it time and time again.”
“I really liked getting to know everyone and having deep conversations late into the night. Connecting with people you’ve just met was really cool, and the outdoor team building activities were fun, too.”
