Are you secular but still deeply Jewish? (If not ethnically Jewish, do you identify with Jewish culture?) Even if non-theistic, do you still value Jewish community, celebrations and traditions? Do you see ethics and justice as central Jewish values?

I don't know how one cannot identify with Jewish culture since our moral vocabulary here in the West is largely a Jewish moral vocabulary. As for valuing Jewish celebrations and traditions, I honestly cannot think of one Jewish holiday that celebrates the family of humanity, Jew and Gentile alike. Correct me if I am wrong, but all of the Jewish holidays that I know of--Passover, Hannukah, Purim...etc, all celebrate Jewish victimology and the defeat and humiliation of non-Jews. Again, in all honestly, I do not see UNIVERSAL ethics and justice as central Jewish values, but I see most Jews as racially, culturally, and ethnically chauvinistic. I am just being honest. Perhaps by joining your group I can learn differently.
