New Study into Secular Judaism

New study into Jewish secular life.

It is worth reading an article at JTA.org by Sue Fishkoff with a number of diffferent points of view given by several interviewees. There are also details of a new study sponsored by an anonymous donor into finding out just how many non-believing Jews are out there seeking a way into spiritual life, and what the Jewish community should, or should not do, to accommodate them.

Please read the article here. Although the study is US based it could equally relate to many in the UK, so please feel free to comment with your views.

Exploring Secular Judaism

Exploring being Jewish without faith

The BBC radio programme Heart & Soul explores what it means to be Jewish without faith.

The programme can be listened to here.

Whilst the journalist, Nick Baker, presenting the programme has clear ideas as to his own secular Jewish identity, it is fair to say the the programme concludes in agreeing that each secular Jew has their own way of identifying with their Jewish heritage.
