Jewish Secular Humanism
Jewish secular humanism celebrates Jewish life while foregoing appeals for divine intervention, instead putting our faith in human reason and human power as the best vehicles for improving the world. This belief system underscores Peretz Centre's cultural celebrations as well as our educational programs.
