UNDER CONSTRUCTION



Thanks to the Ohel Leah Trust, we are renovating the balcony in the Sanctuary to make it more usable. While the construction work should not impact Shabbat services or Shorashim, there will be some visible construction. We ask for your patience for the next several months while the work is on-going, and we look forward to having more room and better seating in the balcony.









SHAVUOT ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE



RABBI MINNA BROMBERG
May 18-21, 2018

Shorashim

Minna Bromberg is a "voicefinder" -- a rabbi, songwriter, and singer who uses the tools of singing and songwriting to help people to bring more of their inherent wholeness to the world. She believes that every voice deserves to be heard and that every one of us has songs that need to be sung. Minna was ordained by the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College in Boston and received her certification as a teacher of Jewish Meditation by Chochmat HaLev in Berkeley. She earned a PhD in sociology from Northwestern University and is an accomplished singer and songwriter. She currently lives in Jerusalem where she teaches voice to emerging leaders and coordinates the Year-in-Israel Program for Hebrew College rabbinical students.

THE UJC NEEDS YOU!
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 for details.

Welcoming the stranger is greater than receiving the Divine Presence.
Talmud, Shabbat 127a





 


Shorashim




Shorashim will NOT meet this Sunday, 20th May as it is Shavuot. Instead we invite all UJC families to join us for the Sinai Experience, a celebration of the sights, sounds, scents and tastes of Shavuot. We'll end the morning with a Dairy/Veg Potluck with an ice cream bar for dessert. Click here for more information.

Finally, please plan on joining us for Shabbat Noar on Friday, 1st June. Shorashim students will lead the service and we will honor our Shorashim teachers, madrichim, and UJC NETTs. Full details are here.


If you haven't yet send your completed registration forms to The UJC office yet, please do so now.

If you have any questions, please contact Rabbi Martha or the UJC office.

UJC HK - Tree of Life


THE UJC

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.

CONGREGATIONAL PROFILE

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.

HISTORY

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]
