The Humanist Hub is a place where you can connect with other people, act to make the world better, and evolve as a human being. We are a center for humanist life—a nonreligious community committed to the power of connection to help us do good and live well. We use reason and dialogue to determine our highest ethical values, we act on those values with love and compassion, and we help one another evolve as individuals as we work to improve our world.
Founded in 1974 as the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard, we were a small organization serving humanists, atheists, and agnostics at and around the University for over 30 years. In recent years we have evolved into a hub for secular community programs in Greater Boston and beyond.
Humanist Hub executive director Greg M. Epstein, the Humanist Chaplain at Harvard, was ordained as a humanistic rabbi by the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism in 2005. He leads the Hub’s experimental new humanistic havurah, Shir LaShalom, with his wife, Jackie.
