Who We Are
The Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture (BSEC) is a congregation of individuals and families who choose to emphasize personal growth and social progress as high on their list of priorities. BSEC is a community of communities, attracting good people from all religious traditions, backgrounds, races, family configurations and sexual orientations.
We are a liberal religious and educational fellowship without formal creed or dogma. We hold a strong, shared faith in the potential of human beings to develop our compassion, wisdom, and ability to work together - to bring about a caring, just and sustainable world.
An Ethical Society is for people who care about becoming the best they can be, and who care about the disempowered. We also seek to do our part to create a more just, loving and sustainable world for all.
We are an open society, welcoming of diverse families and individuals of all backgrounds.
