Welcome to the Secular Jewish Circle of Puget Sound!
Since 1994 we have been gathering as a community, dedicated to preserving and passing on Jewish identity, values and culture through a non-theistic, humanist approach. Our inter-generational family of like-minded friends includes Jewish individuals and couples, children, interfaith and multi-cultural families, and members of the LGBT community.
Together, We Gather
…for Shabbat celebrations and to observe Jewish holidays with stories and ceremonies that are thoughtful adapted to reflect both our history, and the philosophy and values of Secular Humanistic Judaism .
Together, We Learn
…though programming for adults and children — including a full Shalom Sunday School curriculum and a B’nai Mitzvah program that follows the philosophies of secular humanism, within the context of Jewish tradition.
Together, We Grow
…as we explore the evolution of Jewish thought and culture across nations, eras, and cultures, to create of our own free will the expression of Judaism that is authentic to who we are today — a community of Jewish individuals who come together because we feel a connection to our Jewish roots, but prefer a non-theistic, humanist approach.
Together, We are a Mishpocheh
…a family! We’d love for you to join us!
