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






This Sunday, 19th May, B'nai Mitzvah students and madrichim will have a special session on recognizing and standing up to anti-Semitism facilitated by the Anti-Defamation League. B'nai Mitzvah students and madrichim should arrive at the BIshop Lei meeting room by 9:30am. Students in Gan, Kitah Alef, Kitah Bet, and Kitah Gimmel will have class as usual on 19th May.

The final Shorashim session for the year will be on Sunday, 2nd June. We will flip the day around and begin with classes and end with a special kinnus where we will honor teachers and madrichim, vote on tzedakah, and celebrate the end of a terrific year. Full details are coming but parents please plan on joining us toward the end of the day.




We always love to welcome new students to Shorashim. If you know of a family that is new to Hong Kong or that you think might be interested in Shorashim, please pass on their contact details to Rabbi Martha and we'll will be happy to get in touch with them.

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]
