Rabbi Peter H. Schweitzer is the leader of The City Congregation for Humanistic Judaism in New York City. Humanistic Judaism is the denomination in Jewish life that celebrates Judaism as the cultural and human-centered historical experience of the Jewish people.
He is the author of "The Liberated Haggadah: A Passover Celebration for Cultural, Secular and Humanistic Jews" and "The Guide for a Humanistic Bar/Bat Mitzvah." He is a regular contributor to Moment Magazine’s “Ask the Rabbi” column from the Humanistic perspective.
For 25 years, Rabbi Schweitzer amassed one of the most significant collections of Jewish Americana, with more than 10,000 items and artifacts, that he donated to the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia in 2005. Many items are now on display in the museum’s new building.
