Jewish Atheism?

What exactly does it mean to identify as a Jewish atheist? As part of FtBConscience2, Chana Messinger of The Merely Real and Miri Mogilevsky of Brute Reason sat down to hash out what it means to them to be both Jewish and atheists. (Chana also participated in last summer’s Camels With Hammers Show special on controversies related to a proposed Holocaust memorial on statehouse grounds in Ohio.)

Remember to catch live FtBCon talks here through tomorrow night. I will be on talking about “Philosophy for Everyone” tomorrow at 1pm Eastern Time, with Julia Galef, Jess Whittlestone, and Richard Carrier.
