Doing Jewish Differently

We celebrate Jewish identity and culture by replacing worship with human responsibility and equality.

 
 
 

People not Prayer

Human beings have the intelligence and wisdom to determine the purpose and course of their lives, free of supernatural guidance.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Welcoming Intercultural Families and LGBTQIA+

Everyone should celebrate who they are, including intercultural families who feel connected to both Jewish and other religious or cultural heritages.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Engaging Rabbi

"To be Jewish is to be an heir to Jewish tradition, not a museum curator. The tradition is ours to adapt and use consistent with our values and beliefs." -- Rabbi Adam Chalom

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Customized B Mitzvahs

Instead of being assigned the weekly Torah portion, we empower our students to think for themselves and choose their reading from the Torah or other Jewish literature based on their interests and inspiration.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Meaningful Holiday Celebrations

Instead of doing things because "that's the way they've always been done," we explore the meaning behind holiday traditions and adapt them for today.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Innovative Membership Model

Money should not matter in finding a meaningful connection. Members freely choose their annual financial contribution, another example of how we "say what we mean and mean what we say."

    Shabbat Service: Entering Elul (in person & Zoom) (Yahrtzeit Service)

    Friday, Aug 6th 7:30p to 9:00p
    Elul, the Jewish month that begins shortly after this Shabbat, has no set holidays or fast days. Rabbinic Judaism prescribed rituals of repentance: sounding the shofar [ram’s horn], reciting prayers apologizing and begging forgiveness, reflecting on failure and repairing relationships in preparation for cosmic judgment at the New Year. How can Humanistic Jews approach the human wisdom in these traditional rituals to find meaning, inspiration, and healing? NOTE: in-person attendees are asked to be vaccinated and masked.
