Welcome to Kahal B'raira

Teen blowing shofar during high holiday service

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.

Visitors Welcome!
