JUDAISM 101: What Does Secular Humanistic Judaism Teach About Our History and Heritage?
An on-going series of classes presented by Rabbi Peter Schweitzer

TO CUT OR NOT TO CUT: The past, present and future of circumcision
What are the origins of this ritual? How was it observed or neglected over the ages? How are parents facing this choice today? What are the implications of their decisions? What makes this such an emotional issue?

There are many traditions associated with the birth of a child that we as cultural Jews feel free to adopt, adapt, or discard altogether. Although most secular and Humanistic Jews preserve the tradition of circumcision, Humanistic Judaism does not consider it a requirement for Jewish identity. Come find out why.

Visitors are welcome.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance using the form below.

Also join us for: Jealousy, Rage and Murder on February 13 or Decoding Jewish Names on February 27.
