Secular And Humanistic Jews
While secular Jewish groups have been around since the mid-19th century,
Humanistic Judaism celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.
"In terms of philosophy, we are secular in that we stress culture and history
and ethics and morals of Judaism — and God is not taught here — but we
have no synagogue and no rabbi," said Marilyn Wolfe, educational director of
the 55-year-old Jewish Parents Institute of West Bloomfield. Other area secular
groups are the Jewish Cultural Society in Ann Arbor, Sholem Aleichem
Institute in Southfield and Workmen's Circle-Arbeter Ring in Oak Park. E

A Reform rabbi, Rabbi Cohn-
Sherbok included a chapter on
Rabbi Wine in his book, Fifty Key
Jewish Thinkers, alongside others
including Martin Buber, Abraham
Joshua Heschel, Maimonides,
Theodor Herzl and Elie Wiesel.
Rabbi Wine, the man who is usu-
ally looking ahead, paused for a
brief glimpse back and said,
"Nobody in that living room in
1963 would ever have believed what
we've accomplished. They never
could have imagined the movement
that would become of it."
"When I first met Rabbi Wine in
1971, I asked him if the vitality of
the movement was based on the
charisma, talent and intelligence of
one man and whether it would dis-
appear when he retired," said Rabbi
Harold Loss of the Reform Temple
Israel in West Bloomfield.
"At the time, he answered me
