Mishkan Hanefesh, Machzor for the Days of Awe


Friday, 24th February 2017

Sign up to be a guest is now open. (Click here to sign up)

There are approximately 500 souls in our UJC family. That's a pretty big mishpacha. Without some effort it isn't possible to know one another as well as we should. So...

On Friday night February 24, 2017, we hope that every single UJC member will either host a Shabbat dinner for other UJC members in their home or attend one of these dinners. The aim is for us all to spend a joyous, haimish Shabbat evening meeting new people and turning acquaintances into friends.

(See "From the Rabbi's Desk" for more details.)

This is a huge undertaking. We need HELP!

Volunteer to help plan 500 Guests. (Click here)

(Many thanks to those who have already volunteered.)

Be part of this major effort to strengthen the person-to-person connections between us and so strengthen our precious kahal as a whole.

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 High Holy Day prayerbook.

It was exciting and inspiring to use our new Mishkan HaNefesh machzorim at last year's High Holy Day Services. Even though the machzorim are now in use, sponsorship opportunities are still available.

Please consider sponsoring a set or multiple sets of Mishkan HaNefesh. A special bookplate has been designed that allows sponsors to make a personal dedication in honor or in memory of a loved one. In addition, your sponsorship will support the programs of The UJC and helps establish a fitting tribute 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

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]
