Society for Humanistic Judaism
Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine

Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine, founder of Humanistic Judaism, was killed in an automobile accident on Saturday, July 21, 2007, while on vacation in Essaouira, Morocco.

Rabbi Wine was leader, guide, mentor, teacher, colleague and friend to the many people whose lives he touched. The Society is deeply saddened by the loss of this inspirational visionary.

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to his family and to all who loved him.

Zekher tsadik livrakha the memory of a good person is a blessing.
