Kahal Am

The Humanistic Jewish Community of San Diego

Image description


Kahal Am is a compelling option for modern Jewish identity in the San Diego Area. Humanistic Jews understand Judaism as the human-centered history, culture, civilization, ethical values, and shared experiences of the Jewish people. We believe that individuals shape their own lives independent of a supernatural authority. 

You may recognize that our humanistic views of Jewish culture, traditions, and observances correspond with the way in which you would like to cherish your Judaism.  Our warm, caring community welcomes anyone who identifies with Judaism, including intercultural and LGBT families.

We hope our website will give you an understanding of Humanistic Judaism and we encourage you to visit our community.  Please feel free to contact us for more information
