Secular Humanist Rabbi to Speak at Bnai Keshet Kaplan Minyan

Rabbi Sivan Malkin Maas, a senior leader of the international movement for Secular-Humanistic Judaism, will speak about “Judaism Without God” at Bnai Keshet’s Kaplan Minyan on Saturday morning, November 18. The Kaplan Minyan, which meets in the Red Gables historic house across the parking lot from the synagogue’s main building, begins at 10:30 a.m. with selected songs and readings.

The first Israeli rabbi ordained by the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism (IISHJ), Rabbi Maas is the Dean of Tmura-IISHJ in Jerusalem, the Institute for Training Secular Humanistic Rabbis and Jewish Leadership in Israel, and director of the Secular Library, publishing works on Judaism as culture. She is also president of Secular Judaism, a coalition of Secular Humanistic projects and organizations in Israel.

The Bnai Keshet Kaplan Minyans are named for Reconstructionist Judaism founder Mordecai Kaplan, who sought to create a Jewish framework for discussions of ethics, culture, history and current events. They are designed for people who enjoy a communal Shabbat and want to enrich their understanding of Jewish peoplehood in an alternative, less traditional setting.
