Mishkan Hanefesh, Machzor for the Days of Awe

Six years ago, The UJC joined Progressive congregations from around the world in adopting Mishkan T'filah as our weekday, Shabbat, and festival prayer book. We are excited once again to be part of the world-wide renewal of Progressive worship as we celebrate the publication of Mishkan HaNefesh, the High Holiday companion to the beautiful and inspiring Mishkan T'filah. Further, the introduction of Mishkan HaNefesh will mark the establishment of the Evan Blanco Memorial Machzor Fund, a fitting tribute to honor our friend and devoted member.

We are pleased to offer The UJC family the opportunity to be part of this once in a generation transition to a new machzor and to help us establish a lasting tribute to Evan Blanco. Please consider sponsoring a set or multiple sets of Mishkan HaNefesh. For more information on Mishkan HaNefesh and how you can sponsor a set in honor or in memory of a loved one click here.


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

JANUARY 15, 2016

You're Invited!!

On Friday night January 15, 2016, 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 "500 Guests FAQ" for more details.)

People are already volunteering to be hosts, now it is time to reach out to guests.

If you would like to be a guest at a 500 Guests Shabbat Dinner, CLICK HERE and we'll be in touch to gather some information that will help us make "good matches" between guests and hosts.

Thank you to those who have already volunteered to host. We still need more people to open their homes on January 15. If you would like to host a 500 Guests Shabbat Dinner, CLICK HERE.

Be part of what promises to be a very special Shabbat celebration!

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]
