SHJ Updates Criteria Used to Make Ethical Concerns Decisions

 

Farmington Hills, MI, April 30, 2015 – The Society for Humanistic Judaism (SHJ), speaks out on issues that promote our core ethical values. At its recent meeting of the Board of Directors, the SHJ voted to update the criteria it uses to determine whether or not to consider an issue for resolution. 

 

The resolution must relate to at least one of the criteria below:

 

  1. Separation of church and state (i.e. freedom of religion and freedom from religion), OR
  2. Jewish identity/culture, OR
  3. Policy solutions that promote the core ethical values of freedom, dignity and self-esteem and are based on persuasive arguments from compelling evidence.
