Shabbat Schedule

Erev Shabbat Services are held on Friday evenings at 7:00 PM in The UJC Sanctuary.

Services are followed by a Shabbat dinner at The Jewish Community Centre.  Please contact The UJC office no later than 10:00 AM on Friday morning to make a booking for Shabbat dinner.  Cost: HK$200 (Adult), HK$70 (Children’s meal up to 12).

Shabbat Morning Services are held when there is a Bar/Bat Mitzvah at 10:00 AM in The UJC Sanctuary.

On those Shabbat mornings when there is no Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Torah study is held in the Rabbi’s flat at 9:30 AM.  All are welcome to join for a bagel brunch and an informal discussion of the week’s Torah portion.

Please note: The UJC is always pleased to welcome newcomers as well as visitors to Hong Kong to join us for Shabbat services.  In these troubled times we are sure you will agree that we do need to take special care to keep everyone safe, and so, in accordance with our security protocols, all visitors must bring along their passports for our security official to look at before we permit admittance to the synagogue or to any of our services.  It would also assist us if you would first phone The UJC office on (852) 2523-2985, or to e-mail us, to let us know that you plan to join us.
