Humanistic Judaism offers an alternative approach to Judaism, including non-theistic celebrations of Jewish holidays and life-cycle events and a love of Jewish heritage.
We learn from humanism and the history, culture, and experience of the Jewish people, finding inspiration for pursuing personal goals and striving for social justice.
We foster a positive Jewish identity, intellectual integrity, and ethical behavior within our community.
We believe human beings are responsible for solving human problems. We take responsibility for our own behavior and the state of the world.
Celebrate Chanukah! Sunday, December 21, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Hear the story of Chanukah from our Jewish Humanist Perspective. Be part of our holiday service and singing. Bring your menorah to light or help to light our menorah. Spin the dreidel (top) and do other fun activities. Eat a holiday meal with lots of latkes (potatoe pancakes). If you love Jewish culture or if you are just beginning to experience it, you will find our services rich with song, meaning and celebration. No prior level of Jewish knowledge is needed. Appropriate for adults and children. More information/Registration

There are engaging activities for all ages. Find all the information you need to learn more about Kahal B'raira or to plan a visit.
When I first came to KB I was drawn in by the warmth of the people there as well as what the services say, e.g., 'My light is in me. My hope is in me. My strength is in me, and, in you.' At times I am so touched by the words and the warmth, I have tears in my eyes.
