Welcome to the website of the Pacific Community of Cultural Jews!
What is this organization?
We are a community of Jews who live in the Orange County, California area. Our approach to being Jewish is secular and humanistic.
We focus on the culture of the Jewish people. We celebrate the Jewish holidays in a non-theistic manner.
We have regular monthly activities in addition to Jewish holiday celebrations.
Go to the Calendar page to see upcoming events.
The Pacific Community of Cultural Jews is affiliated with two national organizations: the Congress of Secular Jewish Organizations (CSJO),

Secular Humanistic Jews Affirm that…
- A Jew is someone who identifies with the history, culture and future of the Jewish people.
- Jewish identity is best preserved in a free, pluralistic environment.
- Jewish history is a human saga, a testament to the significance of human power and human responsibility.
- Judaism is the historic culture of the Jewish people.
- We posses the power and responsibility to shape our own lives independent of supernatural authority.
- Ethics and morality should serve human needs.
- The freedom and dignity of the Jewish people must go hand in hand
