The Association of Humanistic Rabbis (AHR) is a professional rabbinic organization that meets annually for fellowship, development of ethical positions, study and sharing of ideas in order to strengthen the movement and enhance collegial support.

The AHR is a supportive community of rabbis participating in diverse aspects of Jewish community life bound by our commitment to the values and principles of Secular Humanistic Judaism.

Established in 1967 by Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine (z”l, 1928-2007), founder of Humanistic Judaism, the AHR attracted progressive rabbis primarily from the Reform movement for the purposes of creating an alternative perspective on important issues of the day. The Association went through a period of inactivity and was revived in the spring of 2001 and has remained active since that time.
