Jewish Questions/Jewish Answer - One Congregation One Book - Introduction to Judaism

The United Jewish Congregation of Hong Kong (UJC) was founded in 1988 "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

"Talmud Torah Ki Neged Kulam: The study of Torah is equal to all of the commandments for it leads to all of them!"

JEWISH QUESTIONS/JEWISH ANSWERS




In this year-long series we will show how a Progressive approach to Jewish tradition can help us navigate the issues we must face as individuals, as a community, and as a society. Our texts (which will be provided) will mainly be responsa, answers to real-life questions posed to prominent Rabbinic authorities in the Progressive/Reform and Conservative/Masorti movements.

Jewish Questions/Jewish Answers is underway, but it is not too late to register. See the schedule of topics below or click here to download the full schedule.

More than anything else, Jewish tradition is a conversation. Be part of it. Come ask Jewish questions and help us seek Jewish answers.
