It is not a holiday. It is not Shabbat. It is, however, an opportunity to get together and socialize at Beth Ami – Colorado Congregation for Humanistic Judaism’s International Dinner Out. Partake in a delicious authentic Himalayan meal. Enjoy the food and the company. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are available. Everyone pays separately.

Are there Jews in Nepal? While there is no native Nepalese Jewish community, in 1986, the Israeli embassy in Kathmandu began a tradition of holding a Passover Seder for the thousands of Jewish visitors. It has been called the world’s largest Seder! The Jerusalem-based NGO Tevel B’Tzedek sends Israeli youths to Nepalese villages to help teach efficient forms of irrigation and agriculture to outlying villages. Many Jewish individuals visit Nepal staying in Ashrams or touring sights and climbing mountains. Israelis comprise about one percent of total tourism in Nepal! Regardless of whether there are Jews in Nepal or not, let’s eat some great food, drink some delicious chai and have some fun conversation together.

Beth Ami is the only Humanistic Jewish congregation in Colorado and is a proud affiliate of the Society for Humanistic Judaism. We celebrate Jewish holidays, learning and life cycle events through the secular lens of history, culture, and reason. We believe in the human capacity to create a better world without supernatural intervention.

Beth Ami is a welcoming community where we connect to Jewish past, celebrate Jewish present and link to Jewish future through a humanistic philosophy. We encourage anyone interested in learning about Humanistic Judaism to attend this and all our events.

Let’s do Jewish together – Humanistically!
