Mishkan Hanefesh, Machzor for the Days of Awe

Commemorate a simcha or honor the memory of a loved one by sponsoring a set of Mishkan HaNefesh, the new Progressive machzor.

The publication of Mishkan HaNefesh was an important milestone in the development of the Progressive Movement. The UJC adopted Mishkan HaNefesh two years ago. This still quite new machzor greatly enhanced the beauty and depth of our services for the High Holy Days.

You can be part of this moment in the history of our movement and our congregation by sponsoring a set or multiple sets of Mishkan HaNefesh. A special bookplate has been designed that allows sponsors to make a personal dedication in honour or in memory of a loved one. In addition, your sponsorship will support the programs of The UJC and will be a fitting memorial to our friend and devoted member Evan Blanco.

Please click here for the Mishkan HaNefesh Sponsorship Form.

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



The UJC is proud to announce that it is one of the recipients of a matching grant from the Jewish Funders Network called "Avenues to Jewish Engagement for Intermarried Couples and their Families," in Honor of 2015 Genesis Prize Laureate Michael Douglas.

We are so pleased to be able to continue this vital engagement work here in Hong Kong.
Todah rabbah to Josephine Pichanick Mogelof who led the grant application process, to all our generous matching grant donors, and to everyone who has contributed to making The UJC worthy of this recognition.

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



Registration packets for next year have been sent via email to all returning students' parents. If you have not yet received your registration forms please contact The UJC office. Please complete and return your child's registration as soon as possible as early registration makes planning for next year much easier.

We would love to welcome new students to Shorashim! Children age four and up are eligible to attend. If you know of a family that is new to Hong Kong or might be interested in Shorashim for their children, please have them contact me, or pass on their name to me and I will reach out.

Please note that Shorashim will begin on Sunday, 3rd September.

UJC HK - Tree of Life


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]
