Judaism Beyond God -
by Sherwin Wine
Jewish texts contain many statements about God and theology, but Judaism is much more than a theology or even a religious way of life, as it is often defined.
Judaism is nothing less than the four-thousand-year history of the Jewish people. It is a cultural context that makes its members' lives meaningful, even when their lives do not reflect any overt religious commitment.

A Ceremonial and Philosophic Guide For Humanists and Humanistic Jews
Though this book will appeal to all humanists, it will have special meaning for those Jews who value their Jewish identity but no longer feel a significant connection to conventional religion - those whose experience of Judaism is ethnic but also secular. This book seeks to dramatize, in prose, poetry, and song, what secular and humanistic Jews feel about their heritage.
