Throwing Out the Bathwater But Keeping the Baby

August 25, 2018 @ 10:30 am

Paul Golin, Executive Director of the Society for Humanistic Judaism, will speak on “Throwing Out the Bathwater But Keeping the Baby: Religion, Humanism and Community” followed by a panel discussion of humanist community representatives, including Jim Barnett (Bay Area Humanists) and Mashariki Lawson-Cook (Black Humanists and Non-Believers of Sacramento), and Rabbi Judith Seid (Tri-Valley Cultural Jews). Join us for an interactive conversation exploring the relationship between religion and humanism. As an increasing percentage of Americans leave traditional religion, what can we take with us? What if any practices, rituals, and forms of community can be adapted from religion and applied in secular spaces? Share what is still personally meaningful from your own religious heritage. Or declare, as some certainly do, that we must discard it all to rid ourselves from religious dogma and superstitious beliefs. Doors open at 10:00 AM, Location: Albany SENIOR Center, 849 Masonic Ave, Albany. Hosted by Kol Hadash. Free; RSVP for optional $15 boxed lunch required by Aug. 22.
