WELCOME

We invite you to explore our website 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, the Philadelphia Ethical Society is a member of the American Ethical Union.
