A Welcoming Humanist Community

We are a community of caring hearts and thoughtful minds, working to create a better world.

Examining the issues of living

Moral education – learning to be a good person – is a lifelong task. We encourage personal growth through sensitivity to others, critical thinking and developing the courage to act on ethical values.

Deed Before Creed

Each of us has a moral responsibility to help reduce suffering, enhance the quality of life and to contribute to the well-being of society.
We are opening our doors to our community for Sunday Platform Meetings

Please note that Sunday Platform Meetings will be offered in two different ways:

1) In person/Hybrid (live in person in our meeting room with combined Zoom access)

2) Zoom only

To stay informed about which meetings are Hybrid and which are Zoom only, please join our email list below. Meeting details will be sent to your inbox every week. Or, contact the office at office@ehsli.org or call 516-741-7304
