Here Is Our Light: Humanistic Jewish Holiday and Life-Cycle Liturgy for Inspiration and Reflection (Paperback)
This book collects some of the best Humanistic Judaism liturgy from leaders, thinkers, and clergy from across the movement and over the past half-century. The liturgical pieces within can augment existing holiday observances (Shabbat, Passover, Hanukkah, etc.) and life-cycle ceremonies (baby namings, b'nai mitzvahs, weddings, etc.), and can serve as the core around which to build new services or ceremonies. It can be used in communities large and small, and in individual homes. Most of all, it can help people, by providing the right words at the right times to foster joy and remembrance, reflection and celebration, awe and appreciation.
The 50th anniversary of the Society for Humanistic Judaism, the movement's community-organizing body, is an auspicious occasion to share these liturgical highlights and find in them inspiration for new Jewish and humanistic expressions in the years ahead
