The Secular Humanist Jewish Circle will present a lecture Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, 2-4 p.m. at the Dusenberry-River Library, 5605 E River Road.

Practicing lawyer and rabbinical student Jeremy Kridel will discuss “Fact and Fiction; Myth and Metaphor — How Secular Humanist Judaism, a non-theist branch of Judaism, deals with traditional Jewish Texts/Sources.” This is a question that Secular Humanist Jews are often asked. Kridel has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in religious studies with a focus on Jewish history and biblical interpretation from Florida State University. He is studying for the rabbinate at the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism.
