Welcome to Ethical Culture

The New York Society for Ethical Culture is a welcoming home for humanists. We've provided non-theistic services in a congregational setting since 1876. We embrace the diversity of our city and invite all to join us in celebrating life’s joys, supporting one another through life’s crises, and working together to make the world a better place.
Learn more about us in The Meeting House video .
We have exciting platforms every Sunday, thought-provoking events after work and during lunchtime. Sign up for our  New York Society for Ethical Culture and get alerted to all of our events!

A Call To Action

Common Ground 2015  

The Humanist Community at Rutgers and The American Ethical Union have planned an all-day conference, FREE and open to the general public, that brings together believers, non-believers and humanists in conversation to gain perspective on each other’s ways of seeing and being in the world. We hope to embrace commonalities and work together for social change. Through four panel sessions, workshops, and breakout sessions, attendees will hear academics and leaders from national and local organizations, including our own Anne Klaeysen, discuss views on finding meaning in life, ethics and values, and how to collaborate for social action. 
Thursday, October 8, 8:45 am - 6 pm
