17-04-30: Secular Humanist Jewish Circle

April 30, 2017

Susan Rubin


This Sunday's service introduces 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.

The Podcast is of poor quality due to recording problems.
