Richard Koral-Founder's Day

Today we celebrate the founding of the Ethical Culture Movement. It was on a sunny day in May, 1876 that Dr. Felix Adler, a German-American philosopher, educator, and social reformer, proposed a non-theistic vision of uniting humanity over ethical and moral values. In his inaugural speech to a group of about 100 invited guests at Standard Hall in NYC, Dr. Adler explained what his new group would do, what its meetings would be like, and who was called to participate. We still follow the pattern he set back then.

Dr. Richard L. Koral is the Leader at the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island. He is also a part-time Leader at the New York Society for Ethical Culture in New York City. Richard holds a Doctor of Ministry in interfaith pastoral counseling from the Hebrew Union College as well as degrees from New York University and New York Law School.  Active with the American Ethical Union, the national federation of Ethical Culture/ Ethical Humanists Societies, Richard served on its Board as president from 2012 to 2015.
