About: Humanistic Judaism combines the Jewish values of Gemilut ChassadimTzedaka, Tzedaka, and Tikkun Olam, with the recognition that the responsibility for putting them in practice lies in human hands. It is a nontheistic movement in which cultural Jews and their families can affirm, celebrate, and enrich their Jewish identity and values. The Society is the central body for the Humanistic Jewish movement in North America.
