All About The Birmingham Temple:
The Birmingham Temple provides Jewish education, celebration and community as part of the world movement of Humanistic Judaism. Humanistic Jews believe that Judaism is the culture and civilization of the Jewish people and that this culture was created by the Jewish people over many centuries; that a Jew is someone who identifies with the history and culture of the Jewish people; that men and women have, and have always had, the power and responsibility to shape their own lives independent of supernatural authority; that the path to truth is found in an open mind; willing to follow the evidence wherever it may lead, that morality should promote personal freedom and human dignity; and that the freedom and dignity of the Jewish people must go hand in hand with the freedom and dignity of every human being.
We invite you to become part of The Birmingham Temple family!
Judaism needs to be allowed to evolve to meet the real needs of the Jewish people in every generation. The Jewish and human experience are testimony to the need for a Humanistic approach to Judaism.
