Information about InTheMoment blog
A recent article on the InTheMoment blog here is quite relevant to humanistic jews wherever they are based in the world.
Notwithstanding the article, InTheMoment appears a fun and intelligent forum for independent jewish thoughts and opinions.
To quote, it’s about page directly:
IntheMoment is Moment Magazine‘s official blog.
We enjoy moonlit walks on the beach, romantic dinners and a sense of humor.
We also enjoy looking at wordly topics through a journalistic, independent Jewish lens. Whether talking about geopolitical trends, Israeli culture and politics, American Jewish experience, the Jewish religion itself or the antics of Sarah Silverman, our writers approach their subjects with an open and ever-inquiring perspective.
The best way to enjoy IntheMoment:

Humanistic Judaism UK recommends Jewish Renaissance
As Humanistic Jews, we place great value in Jewish Culture and all that it encompasses. As such, we are fortunate that there is a UK publication, Jewish Renaissance, which covers all areas of Jewish culture, history and literature in an excellant quarterly publication.
With UK subscribers charged just £19 per year, a subscription is certainly a worthwhile investment.
Amongst it’s plaudits is Man Booker Prize winner, Howard Jacobson who writes:
Jewish Renaissance does the near-impossible: it rescues English Jews from the curse of the parochial, re-uniting us with the wider, grander, older and newer, world of Jewish thought and event. Essential reading if you’re Jewish or if you’re not.
You can find Jewish Renaissance at it’s website: www.jewishrenaissance.org.uk
