Saturday Evening: “Humanistic Havdalah – Jewish Peoplehood”

How are we connected to Jews locally and around the world? What defines the Jewish people as a group? Do we have a collective identity? Are we a people (and what is “peoplehood”, anyway)? Let’s discuss your thoughts at our Beth Ami Humanistic Havdalah.

Havdalah is the end of Shabbat. It is the welcoming in and preparing for the new week and, most of all, it is a nice excuse for Humanistic Jews to get together and reflect on interesting issues.

This Saturday, April 24, we will gather together online at 7:00 pm to say goodbye to Shabbat with a brief Havdalah candle ceremony, a few songs and, if you like, a BYO dessert. Then we will engage in a sure-to-be-interesting discussion of our Jewish identities. (After all, when you get five Jews on a Zoom, you get six opinions!)

Please submit your RSVP at our Meetup page (
