Theological Diversity within the UUA
Organizations affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association testify to the variety of faith heritages represented in our denomination. Find out about the HUUmanists Association, the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship, the Unitarian Universalist Buddhist Fellowship, the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans, and Unitarian Universalist Partner Churches in Romania, India and the Philippines.
In her 2004 UU World article "What can Jewish Orthodoxy teach us?," the Revered Elizabeth Lerner, who was raised UU, writes:
I am a Unitarian Universalist in the same way I am an American—born to it, out of a colorful ancestral stew. My ancestors arrived here from Poland, Russia, and Italy within the same twenty-year span. Roman Catholic on one side of the family, Jewish on the other, I am a perfect candidate for Unitarian Universalism—which is exactly why my parents chose this faith and raised me and my sister in it. Unitarian Universalism's religious pluralism, as so many of us have found, is a good match for American cultural pluralism.
The website of Rev. Marti Keller, the Skinner House book, Jewish Voices in Unitarian Universalism, and the website of Unitarian Universalists for Jewish Awareness are places to explore Jewish connections in our faith.
