Rabbi Sherwin Wine

Sherwin Wine was a brilliant and innovative Jewish and Humanist thinker, a talented and sensitive congregational rabbi, an untiring organizer and activist, and a modern-day Renaissance man who read and learned as much as he could to teach and inspire as much as he could.

We encourage you to read about his life and work, and to enjoy the selections of his writings, as well as audio and video recordings, available here. This legacy website is a project of the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism.

Note on sources: The Jewish Humanist  was the monthly newsletter of The Birmingham Temple. The periodical Humanistic Judaism was the quarterly journal of the Society for Humanistic Judaism. The Center for New Thinking was Wine’s adult learning program beyond Humanistic Judaism. Selections from Wine’s books are appropriately cited.
