- We are a community of people who share beliefs and traditions, and join together for learning opportunities, socialization, and ceremonial observances of the events of our lives. Some of us, who grew up in other branches of Judaism, or in other religions, like to think of Secular Humanistic Judaism as a religion. Others, whose roots and traditions were secular, don't find the notion of a religion as particularly helpful. What we do depends on our beliefs and traditions, and not on any labels we might use. We celebrate life-cycle events such as bar & bas mitzvahs, weddings, funerals and unveilings, and we hold regular meetings which are open to the public. Membership in our group requires payment of annual dues, which are considerably lower than any other Jewish religious organization in the NY Metropolitan area. We are affiliated with the Society for Humanistic Judaism, although we prefer to call ourselves Queens Community for Cultural Judaism. We are also members of the Queens Jewish Community Council.
