Yes, I'm excited. I was born to Jewish parents but have never been interested in the religion. However, I have always loved the culture; humour, food, Yiddish, philosophy, history. I've been a Humanist for several years now and, very recently, I have discovered the Hujus! That is to say a group of people interested in Humanistic Judaism. The culture without the religious claptrap. This is precisely my own position so ------------- I'm a HuJu!

They are quite organised in parts of the US but the movement is in its infancy in the UK. Perhaps infancy overstates its state of development; it is more accurately described as a foetus in the UK. Anyway, I met the group (7 of us) last evening for a Hanukkah dinner and we agreed to meet up again in the new year. I'm looking forward to it.
