Welcome to CHJ’s website!
There is a good chance that you are here because you are seeking to learn more about the Congregation for Humanistic Judaism (CHJ) and about Humanistic Judaism. This site is designed to provide you with that introduction. By navigating on the menu bar at the top of the page you will find a wealth of information.
CHJ is affiliated with the Society for Humanistic Judaism (shj.org) and is part of a movement that celebrates Jewish culture and heritage through a non-theistic, human-centered approach. Our membership reflects a diverse group of people who have enriched our community by collectively representing many different personal and professional backgrounds.
CHJ is very affordable. Membership for a two-adult household is only $560 per year. For a one-adult household it is $375 per year.
After a successful initial pilot program, CHJ has continued to offer a 50% reduction for the first year of membership. This means that first year membership is now only $280 for a two-adult household and $187 for a single-adult household. We want to make “trying CHJ on for size” as easy and as affordable for you as possible.
