To counter the influence of religion on government policy, Jews for a Secular Democracy is an initiative galvanizing the Jewish community to defend the separation of church and state.

Why a Jewish Initiative? While there are excellent secular organizations fighting for the separation of church and state, and great Jewish organizations fighting for social justice, Jews for a Secular Democracy is uniquely focused on issues of religion-state separation from a Jewish perspective.

Jews for a Secular Democracy draws on Jewish history and teaching to advocate for a civil society that provides equality for people of ALL backgrounds and beliefs, protected by a government neutral toward religion in its fair enforcement of policy and law.

How do we work for change? Our goal is to educate, advocate, and mobilize the Jewish community into action on issues of religion-state separation, and help bring the United States back to a place of understanding that protection from discrimination for minority beliefs and minority populations means protection for us all.
