What do you mean by "Jewish culture"?

The usual elements of culture are language, music, literature, food, traditions, values, and a shared history. All of these are present in Jewish culture. Most of us also partake of other cultures as well, but we recognize certain things as belonging to our Jewish culture, that we have in common.

Is Humanistic Judaism recognized and accepted by the Jewish community?

We belong to our local Jewish Federation and are represented on the Community Relations Council. The International Institute for Secular and Humanistic Judaism is training and ordaining rabbis (as well as educators and community lay leaders).
