Who is SecularSynagogue.com for?

Jewish, Jew-ish, Intermarried, In-married, Unmarried, Secular, Cultural, Atheist, Agnostic, Seeker, Spiritual... YOU

If you are a cultural/secular Jew and want to connect to Jewish wisdom, ideas and community, this is the place for you! Every day you will join people just like you in Jewish-inspired challenges and learning. This is an accessible, affordable, engaged, inclusive, meaningful, and contemporary approach to Jewish learning, practice, and community. Create and foster a deep and rich Jewish life — in 5 - 10 minutes a day.


What do members of SecularSynagogue.com get?

Your membership gives you access to the Facebook group where challenges, teaching, and discussion take place. You’ll get a weekly email and a weekly “inspiration injection” video from Rabbi Denise (also known as a “sermon”). You’ll have access to a website full of resources to DIY Jewish practice at home from Shabbat to Passover and more — these will have traditional and modern options, including those who wish for a completely secular/non-theistic experience.


How much does membership cost?

Founding members fee: $18 a month or an annual fee of $180. Lock into these prices now and your fee will never go up, even after the prices increase for the general public.

Join by September 9th for access to Rabbi Denise's Rosh Hashanah live stream sermon in the closed Facebook group.  Free High Holiday Tickets for the first 15 Toronto area members to join for the whole year! - High Holiday tickets at Oraynu Congregation for Humanistic Judaism (for those new to Oraynu's services). 


SecularSynagogue.com will launch just before Rosh Hashanah and will close at the end of Yom Kippur 2018 and won't reopen again for a while. Get in now to make sure you don't miss the founding member fee and the chance to start the Jewish year with beautiful, meaningful content coming straight to your inbox, and a community to dive in with.

Your engaged Jewish life is only a click away!
