Welcome to NoVES!
We are a humanist congregation that practices Ethical Culture, a movement begun in 1876 by Felix Adler.
National Ethical Service at the United Nations
National Ethical Service, an organization affiliated with the American Ethical Union, has been dedicated to the principles embodied in the United Nations from the time of its formal association with the Department of Public Information in l947. Over the years, we have supported peace-building principles in collaboration with the Missions, UN agencies, and other non-governmental organizations.
National Ethical Service was founded in 1924 by women’s groups at local Societies who attended the National Women’s Conference (original name of National Ethical Service) and in 1925, participated in the US Conference called The Committee on the Cause and Cure of War.
