On July 22, 2003 Religion News Service reported that "A new educational and cultural center has opened in New York to meet the needs of the large population of cultural, non-religious Jews identified in the recent findings of the American Jewish Identity Survey (AJIS 2001) -- the only comprehensive data about this population currently available -- conducted by the Graduate Center of the City University of New York... The International Federation of Secular Humanistic Jews, founded in 1986, has transformed its name and programmatic focus, and opened The Center for Cultural Judaism to implement completely new educational and outreach programs designed to reach this broad and diverse population of cultural Jews."
