Shabbat Cultural Program: What is the Future of Humanistic Judaism?

The Golin family

On July 3rd, 2020, we had the honor and pleasure of having a City Congregation member present: Paul Golin, executive director of the Society for Humanistic Judaism (SHJ), who was gracious enough to allow us to share a recording of his presentation.

As a philosophical approach to life, Humanistic Judaism has never been more relevant than during the Coronavirus pandemic, in its secular reliance on science to reveal truth and its Jewish ethical approach to all human life as equally and infinitely valuable. The way we organize communities around Humanistic Judaism, however, is under greatly increasing strain, and crises have a way of accelerating change already in the works. Paul discussed the challenges and opportunities for growing the movement to reach more households in new and meaningful ways.
