Have all of your basic Jacques Berlinerblau-related needs serviced here—-not those other websites which falsely claim that Jacques Berlinerblau’s eyes are too close together and that Jacques Berlinerblau is long-winded and that, as regards jazz, Jacques Berlinerblau couldn’t swing if he were hanging upside down from a tree.



  • Order the new book!

    A rousing defense of America’s secular roots as our nation’s best way to protect freedom of—and from—religion
  • "How to Be Secular serves as an important reminder that . . . as I have noted in the past . . . we protect our rights to our personal beliefs by preserving the rights of our neighbors to believe otherwise. I agree wholeheartedly with Berlinerblau’s argument and highly recommend this powerful book.”

    —MARIO M. CUOMO, former New York Governor

    “This insightful book is not designed to convince you of the non-existence of God or the afterlife; it exists to convince both the non-theistic and the religious that if we don’t find a way to work together, we will all pay a heavy price. Berlinerblau makes a compelling, urgent case, with rigorous regard to history as well as a keen eye for the relevance of today’s many new variations of fundamentalism.”
