The Secular Humanist Jewish Circle

Sunday, April 30, 10:30am

Susan Rubin

This Sunday's service will introduce us to Secular Humanist Judaism with guest speaker, Susan Rubin, a founding member of the Tucson Secular Humanist Jewish Circle.   Humanistic Judaism is a movement that emphasizes Jewish culture and Jewish history as the source of Jewish identity. Its rituals and ceremonies do not include prayer or invocation of a deity.    A humanistic Jewish community was organized in Tucson in 2009 with the goal of planning and sponsoring Jewish holiday, educational and social events.

UUCT Wins 2010 Bennet Social Justice Award

We are proud to announce that the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson has been named as the 2010 winner of the prestigious Bennett Social Justice Award by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). The news came via a letter from the UUA dated April 2, according to Leila Pine, chair of the UUCT Immigrant Rights Working Group.

The award, which is presented to only one congregation in the United States each year, is for outstanding social justice work through its No More Deaths humanitarian aid ministry, and immigrant rights advocacy by its Immigrant Rights Working Group through educational forums and social witness at rallies and marches.

The UUA will present the Bennett Award to the Rev. Diane Dowgiert at the national General Assembly (GA) in late June in Minneapolis. The framed award certificate also comes with a $500 check for social justice work.

"[The] UUCT has been nationally recognized for your advocacy to end the human rights crisis at the border-from leaving water in the desert for border crossers, to documenting Border Patrol abuses, to crafting legislation on humane border enforcement, and advocating for immigration reform," said Susan Leslie, Director of the UUA Office for Congregational Advocacy and Witness.

Religious Education

Our Vision

Our lifespan learning community seeks to nurture and stimulate the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and social growth of people of all ages, stages of faith and levels of religious experience.
