Explore a humanist community of freethinking people who focus on personal growth, social progress and compassionate relationships.

Maybe you're one of those people who sits in a church pew on Sundays thinking to themselves, "I don't believe this anymore." Or perhaps you've checked out of the dogma arguments altogether, avoid church or temple and just to try living a good, decent life. Or perhaps you’ve been living your own spirituality or philosophy, centered on this life and this world.

If any of those sound like you, we should meet! We're the Brooklyn Ethical Society, a community of individuals and families united by a belief in human worth. Founded in the 19th Century, Ethical Societies believe that bringing out the best in others brings out the best in themselves as well. We also believe in science, reason, humanity, and you.  We don't focus on an afterlife or Final Judgment: our duty is to the living, and to the future generations who will follow us.

We are a community of communities, with members from different traditions, backgrounds, races, family configurations and sexual orientations.

The Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture meets on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. from September to June.  Do you have children?  We also have an Ethics for Children program, for toddlers through teens, from 10:45 a.m. on those same Sundays.  We are at 53 Prospect Park West, in Park Slope, across from the park. We are also on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/EthicalCultureBrooklyn .

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
