Jewish Diversity in Community
What ties together Jews with roots in Russia, Syria, Azerbaijan and Ethiopia? How can we create one Jewish community, even a self-defined Secular Humanistic Jewish congregation, from the wide range of Jewish experiences, attachments, cultures and beliefs? Perhaps what might drive us apart can also bring us together.
Rabbi Adam Chalom has served as Dean-North America of the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism since 2007. He is also the Rabbi of Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation in suburban Chicago. Rabbi Chalom has spoken at several national and international conferences; edited and contributed to several volumes on Judaism, Humanism and their intersection; and provided weekend learning opportunities with Kahal Braira most recently in 2015.
