Join us at the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse on Friday, February 12, 2016, at 11:30 a.m. when Rabbi Adam Chalom will be our guest speaker. Rabbi Chalom is a dynamic and illuminating speaker, a clear and inspiring teacher and a leading voice in the movement of Humanistic Judaism. A worldwide movement, Secular Humanistic Judaism is a cultural Jewish identity celebrated through a human-focused, non-theistic philosophy of life. Rabbi Chalom will give a powerful message of personal dignity, integrity, self-reliance and mutual support.

Rabbi Chalom is the Dean for North America of the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism (IISHJ). He is on the executive committee of the Association of Humanistic Rabbis and the editorial board of the quarterly journal Humanistic Judaism. He earned his PhD in Near Eastern Studies at the University of Michigan and is currently the rabbi of Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation in Lincolnshire outside of Chicago.

This is a special luncheon and is in addition to our regular meeting, which is usually on the fourth Sunday morning each month, October through April. Attendance is $16 in advance including lunch (menu to be announced). While all are welcome, regardless of religious belief, political persuasion or gender preference, you must RSVP to [email protected] for this special event.

Our organizational charter states, “We believe in the responsible search for truth and meaning and in the application of reason and science to the understanding of the universe and the solving of human problems. We believe that tolerance, compassion, equity and civility should characterize the interaction among peace-loving persons and organizations.” You will find information about SaddleBrooke Freethinkers, upcoming presentations and past programs at
