Welcome!

As Leader of the Philadelphia Ethical Society, I welcome you to our website! I invite you to explore it to find out about our programs, community, and historic building on the southwest corner of Rittenhouse Square. Ethical Humanism, a humanist, religious and educational movement, has nurtured religious humanism and contributed to progressive causes for well over a century. Founded in 1885 as the Philadelphia Ethical Society, we are a member of the American Ethical Union. Our local organization offers a place where we partner with groups that share our values, such as Amnesty International and Philadelphians Organized to Witness Empower and Rebuild (POWER).

At the heart of the Ethical Society is our Sunday morning program that offers inspiration to help us live closer to our ethical ideals. Only by visiting and getting to know us can you see how we try to honor the worth of every individual, nurture human relationships and ethical community, and build social justice.

Join us in community, or contact me individually:

Sincerely, Hugh Taft-Morales
