Bringing Children, Finding Adult Community
  My name is Iris. I have been a member of Ethical Culture for 16 years.

  I started coming when my children were young to offer them some ethical education that was non-denominational.

  Now I bring my granddaughter for the same reason.

  In the meantime, I have found a community of adults who share my values, interests, and commitment to living a decent life.

I find emotional support in bad times, and share the joy of good times. I could not imagine my life without NoVES.
