Paul Golin, Executive Director of the Society for Humanistic Judaism, will be giving two talks in the Tampa Bay area. The topic of the first meeting, to be held on March 1st, will be "Can You Be Jewish and Not Believe in God?" This talk addresses the first question other Jews ask about Humanistic Judaism. The second meeting on March 2nd will focus on "Intermarriage and the Jewish Future".
Humanistic Judaism, founded by Rabbi Sherwin Wine in 1967, has 30 congregations and havurot in North America. Humanistic Jews are interested in Jewish history and culture, and celebrate the holidays and observe the life cycle events without reference to a supernatural deity. Humanistic Jewish congregations are members of Federations across the country.
