You need to be a member of Jewish Atheists to add comments!

but why shouldn't the "seder" just be family stuff anyway? The biblical talk is garbage and even the believers know that the archaelogical evidence isn't there. I don't want my son lied to.

Have your own secular sedar! Invite other freethinkers!


I am fortunate to have The Birmingham Temple, the Society for Humanistic Judaism and the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism in my neighborhood (Metro Detroit). Also Arbiter Ring, Jewish Parents Institute and Shalom Aleichem.

I will compromise and attend a sedar that is not entirely secular ONLY if I can read what I bring of my own choosing :)

What do you all do at passover time? My family won't invite me for dinner since my hubby and I won't seder with them.

I'm learning hebrew right now, and plan to learn arabic at some point.

I see the Israeli Atheists posts are almost entirely in Hebrew. I'm curious as to whether there are any Arab members.

@Ruthe, Thanks for the FB link! I've now joined Israeli Atheists on FB.
Comment by Ruthe on January 26, 2010 at 10:20pm! I'll show Daniel.

Ralph...I'm a JAtheist but not 'coming from Judaism' in the sense that I had to deconvert from being a believer. I didn't for a moment think I'd not be welcomed here because I'm a third gen JAtheist rather than deconverted from believing. Why do you think think JA friends aren't welcome here? I didn't get that idea at all.

The atheist Mogen Dovid is quite creative. One point of clarification: Black Freethought is not just for black atheists; it's for all interested in the subject. There are non-Jews with an interest in Jewish culture and affairs. The future will not be like the past. People who carry on traditions may not in the long run be exactly the same people who initiated them, esp. in the USA, where each successive generation is radically different from the previous one.

Matthew...Daniel De Wit, Israeli Atheists (, gave permission to use his art freely. I get so many compliments on it! I'd love it if you'd use it here. I'd show Daniel :) Anyone else can copy Daniel's art too! Pass it around!
