VOLUNTEER TO BE A UJC GREETER
The UJC is establishing a Greeter Corps, a group of volunteers to
welcome and assist both members and visitors at services and other
events. Our aim is to make sure that newcomers and veterans alike
feel the warmth of The UJC whenever they come to shul. Being part
of Greeter Corps is a great way to fulfill the mitzvah of Hachnasat
Orchim, of hospitality and welcoming.
If you have the right stuff -- if you love the UJC and want to share
that love with others, then email The
UJC office to volunteer. Once we have a pool of volunteers,
we will schedule a brief training session. Watch Shabbat Shalom
Welcoming the stranger is greater than receiving the Divine
Presence. Talmud, Shabbat 127a
Shorashim will meet as usual this Sunday, 21st January at 9:30am
in The UJC Sanctuary.
If you haven't yet send your completed registration forms to
The UJC office yet, please do so now.
The United Jewish Congregation of Hong
Kong (UJC) was founded in 1988 by three long term residents of
Hong Kong, Robert Green, Charles Monat
and Robert L. Meyer. Their objective for the
UJC was "to advocate the cause of Reform, Liberal, Conservative,
and other non-Orthodox Jews in Hong Kong" and to encourage their
participation in Jewish life to the fullest. We are a warm, welcoming,
vibrant congregation, with adults and children actively engaged
in all aspects of the community.
The Jewish community in Hong Kong
is extremely diverse, reflecting many traditions from around the
world. While UJC members come mainly from North America, we are
also thoroughly international, including members from the Israel,
Britain, France, Spain, Switzerland, the United States, Canada,
South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and China. Although
some congregants have lived in Hong Kong for decades, many are
in Hong Kong for two to five years. Our membership is comprised
mostly of business and professional people, journalists, teachers,
and academics, and includes many families with school-age children,
as well as many young professionals.
The UJC grew rapidly from a few dedicated
people to become a large Jewish congregation in Hong Kong with
about 200 family and single memberships. Since its inception,
the UJC has been affiliated with the World Union for Progressive
Judaism and is now a key congregation in the Union for Progressive
Judaism. [… read more]
