Celebrate the 1st Amendment - Church/State Separation and Religious Freedom
Our October 28 meeting focused on the tragic shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue. Join the Gainesville Humanistic Judaism Community for our previously planned discussion of separation of church and state and religious freedom, their use and misuse and importance for Jews, atheists, secular humanists and other minority groups. We will highlight the efforts of a new organization, Jews for a Secular Democracy.

What we're about

Humanistic Judaism is coming to the Gainesville area. The Humanistic Judaism movement combines attachment to Jewish identity and culture with a human-centered approach to life. It affirms that human beings are independent of supernatural authority and responsible for themselves. Humanistic Jews are committed to freedom, dignity, and self-esteem. At meetings, we discuss the philosophy of Humanistic Judaism, adapt Jewish traditions for those whose needs are not being fully met by other Jewish institutions, and identify opportunities to support social justice. Meetings provide opportunities to meet other atheist, agnostic, secular humanistic and questioning Jews and to exchange experiences as Jews with humanistic values.
