Our Past

“Without 'ethical culture' there is no salvation for humanity."  - Albert Einstein

2010 marked the 100th anniversary of our beautiful landmark building, a permanent home for the New York Society for Ethical Culture. We celebrated with a Rededication Ceremony and reception, one hundred years to the day - October 23, 2010, with a keynote address by David Brancaccio, a Proclamation from Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, and remarks from other distinguished guests. In addition we had a series of events throughout the year to highlight contemporary ethical concerns and introduce new people to Ethical Culture and to our beautiful and historic building on Central Park West.
