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 cell 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’ve been going to conclave for the past two years and have had a amazing time meeting other Humanistic Jewish youth from around the country and participating in the different
service activities. As Humanistic Jews we’re kind of a minority denomination within a religious minority and getting to meet other Jewish teens who were part of different congregations was really exiting. I definitely felt like I could learn a lot from people at conclave because everyone came with a unique and interesting perspective.”

“Conclave was such a wonderful experience for me. I had been looking for more of a humanistic Jewish community and I found it. I made a family with people who live all over the country. I can’t wait to come back next year as participant of conclave but also as a youth board member!”
— Ari L.
“Sitting as youth rep on the Board of Directors of the American Society for Humanistic Judaism has given me a voice and allowed me to make an impact in a way I never previously experienced. It has been an incredibly rewarding experience to see my work and efforts translate into a meaningful, enriching, and fun experience for my peers during Conclave. Through my time with SHJ, I’ve realized the importance of flexibility and compromise, learned how to lead large groups, and discovered the power a singular person holds to facilitate change.”
— Aliza K.
“Conclave has been such an important part of my life, helping me make incredible, lasting friendships and connect more deeply with my Jewish roots. It has consistently been a highlight of my year and allowed me to explore the country. As a young secular jew, this is the place to be. I don’t know where I’d be without it.”
