More Humanistic Hanukkah

There’s been a decent amount of traffic coming here from searches about how secular Jews celebrate Hanukkah. So as not to leave you empty-handed, new visitor, here’s a short list of resources (and pardon my laziness–but why reinvent the wheel?):

  • The Society for Humanistic Judaism (SHJ) has a page dedicated to Hanukkah from a secular perspective. SHJ also has a YouTube channel with videos on all manner of secular and humanistic Jewish topics.
  • You could also check to see if there’s a secular or humanistic Jewish group near you affiliated with either SHJ or the Congress of Secular Jewish Organizations; go ahead, be a joiner–a people-person, even!
  • SHJ affiliate, the City Congregation in New York, has resources for celebrating Hanukkah
  • SHJ affiliate Kol Hadash in the Chicago area has a home Hanukkah service you can download
  • SHJ affiliate Machar in the Washington, D.C., area has information, including a set of readings for lighting the menorah

(If I didn’t mention a resource you know of, please let me know and I’ll add it to the list!)
