Welcome to Kahal B'raira

Humanistic Judaism offers an alternative approach to Judaism, including non-theistic celebrations of Jewish holidays and life-cycle events and a love of Jewish heritage.

We learn from humanism and the history, culture, and experience of the Jewish people, finding inspiration for pursuing personal goals and striving for social justice.

We foster a positive Jewish identity, intellectual integrity, and ethical behavior within our community. 

We believe human beings are responsible for solving human problems. We take responsibility for our own behavior and the state of the world.

Visitors Welcome!

Boston's Congregation for Humanistic Judaism

Join us to celebrate the Jewish New Year holidays.  Rosh Hashanah is September 9 & 10.  Yom Kippur is September 18 & 19.  Hear the shofar (ram's horn) blown and celebrate the holiday traditions.  Our services are rich with music and song and meaning.  They are accessible to all whether you have a great deal of Jewish experience or are just beginning to learn about the holidays.  Read about each service HERE and register HERE.

We invite you to learn more about Kahal B'raira and Humanistic Judaism at anytime of the year.  Our community is warm and welcoming.  Our Sunday school is a great place for children to learn and there are engaging activities for all ages.  Find all the information you need to learn more or to plan a visit.

What our Members say

When I first came to KB I was drawn in by the warmth of the people there as well as what the services say, e.g., 'My light is in me.  My hope is in me.  My strength is in me, and, in you.'  At times I am so touched by the words and the warmth, I have tears in my eyes.
