In the era of the Third Great Awakening when the Free Religious Association was formed around such moral causes as the abolition of slavery and women’s suffrage, a 27-year-old reformed Rabbi, Felix Adler, spoke out: “There is a great and crying evil in modern society… It is that narrowness of vision which shuts out the wider vistas of the soul… Where the roots of private virtue are diseased, the fruit of public probity cannot but be corrupt.”
146 years after the founding Platform of Ethical Culture, this All-Society Platform will feature members, friends, and guests from societies across the country who will review the major accomplishments of the ethical movement and share personal reflections about “How We Got Here.” There will be an informal interview of 5 or 6 members, followed by breakout groups for additional contributions. The Platform will also highlight a number of musicians in the Ethical Culture movement.
This will be a reflective and interesting discussion on the past, present, and, future of Ethical Culture.

Sunday Platform is our most important and long-standing community event. These gatherings educate, stimulate personal growth, inspire reflection and action, and strengthen our community. Sunday meetings begin with music, followed by greetings and a talk given by a Society Leader, member, or guest. Platforms cover a variety of topics that reflect current events, pressing social issues, and Humanist philosophy. Each Sunday meeting is followed by a luncheon and social hour.
