THE SOCIETY FOR HUMANISTIC JUDAISM:
SHJ Mission Statement
The Society for Humanistic Judaism mobilizes people to celebrate Jewish
identity and culture consistent with a humanistic philosophy of life, independent of supernatural authority.
As the central body for the Humanistic Jewish
Movement in North America, the Society assists in organizing new communities, supporting
its member communities, and in providing a voice for Humanistic Jews.
Humanistic Jews Affirm That...
...A Jew is someone who identifies with the history, culture and future of the Jewish people.
...Jewish identity is best preserved in a free, pluralistic environment
...Jewish history is a human saga, a testament to the significance of human power and human responsibility.
..Judaism is the historic culture of the Jewish people.
...We possess the power and responsibility to shape our own lives independent of supernatural authority.
...Ethics and morality should serve human needs.
...The freedom and dignity of the Jewish people must go hand in hand with the freedom and dignity of every human being.
