The Society for Humanistic Judaism’s youth program, HuJews, is dedicated to supporting teens and young adults and connecting them to Humanistic Judaism. The HuJews Youth Program provides resources for Humanistic Jewish youth groups, college students, and campus havurot. The HuJews Conclave, SHJ’s annual teen and college conference welcomes youth from all over North America.
Holiday gift packs encourage our youth to connect with their Judaism as they progress through their teen years on to college and beyond. These gift packs include a description of the holiday, its humanistic interpretation, blessings (when appropriate), and a food item for each holiday. These holiday gifts are sent to HuJews Conclave participants, student members and life members under the age of 25.
Individuals and corporate sponsors can support the expansion of the HuJews Youth Program, scholarships for the HuJews Conclave, and the creation of Humanistic Jewish campus communities, thus enabling teens and college students to more strongly connect to Humanistic Judaism. Please contact SHJ Executive Director Bonnie Cousens if you are interested in supporting the SHJ youth programs.
