Judaism in a Secular Age: An Anthology of Secular Humanistic Jewish Thought
Edited by Renee Kogel and Zev Katz, this collection features essays by some of the founding members of the movement of Secular Humanistic Judaism, which stresses that you don't have to be religious to connect to Jewish culture. The essays are written by:
- People who first tried to think about Judaism and Jewishness in new ways
- People who believed in the core concepts of humanistic and secular Judaism
- People who laid the philosophical groundwork for organized Secular Humanistic Judaism in the 20th century.
Political theorists and novelists, Hebraists, Yiddishists, Zionists, socialists, and more are included. The volume also includes important issue statements of the International Federation of Secular Humanistic Jews, as well as an English-language bibliography of contributors to the volume for further reading.
