When you choose to join Ethical Culture, you become part of a supportive community that nurtures the spirit, respects the intellect, and connects you to others who value the importance of making this world better for all of us.
Each person may find something different here. NYSEC is a place for personal growth, where you come on Sunday mornings for uplifting music and inspiring talks. It’s a place for social gatherings, to meet friends and see familiar faces. It’s a place for education, where you can learn to write or draw, communicate effectively, participate in philosophical debates or explore world religions. It’s a place for cultural enrichment, where you can discuss books, film, and theater, and meet authors and artists. It’s a place to find support, for solace and assistance in times of need. It's a place to learn, to engage, to celebrate, to get involved.
