Westchester Community for Humanistic Judaism is a religious organization in Scarsdale, New York. The Westchester Community for Humanistic Judaism offers a non-theistic alternative in contemporary Jewish life. It is affiliated with the Society for Humanistic Judaism, which was established by Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine in 1963 in Detroit, Michigan, and has grown into a worldwide movement. Humanistic Judaism embraces a human-centered philosophy that combines the celebration of Jewish culture and identity with an adherence to humanistic values and ideas. Humanistic Jews value their Jewish identity and the aspects of Jewish culture that offer a genuine expression of their contemporary way of life. Humanistic Jewish communities celebrate Jewish holidays and life cycle events (such as weddings and bar and bat mitzvah) with inspirational ceremonies that draw upon but go beyond traditional literature.
