Learn About Jews for a Secular Democracy

On Friday, March 22, from 7:30-9 p.m., Or Emet will host a Shabbat service followed by a program and social time. The events will take place at the Minnesota JCC Sabes Center Minneapolis, 4330 S. Cedar Lake Road, Minneapolis. 

The service will be led by Eva Cohen, Or Emet’s ritual leader and a Humanistic rabbi in training. 

After the service, Or Emet vice president Jeff Pipes will discuss the Jews for a Secular Democracy (JFASD) organization. 

JFASD is focused on issues of religion-state separation from a Jewish perspective. Why? Because throughout American history, Jews, as a minority religion, have benefited from a pluralistic society and government. JFASD advocates for religious freedom for all religions and all people.

Pipes, the Minnesota director for JFASD, is a retired lawyer and winery owner.

Those who cannot attend the program in person may join over Zoom. Please register in advance here

Or Emet is a secular congregation celebrating and honoring Jewish culture, history and values from a humanistic, inclusive perspective. For more information, email [email protected] or visit oremet.org.
