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!"

THE STORY OF THE JEWS, VOL. 2


Join us for our community reading of the second volume of Simon Schama's The Story of the Jews. In this continuation of his Jewish history series, Schama will take us from 1492 to 1900 - from the aftermath of the expulsion of the Jews of Spain to the beginning of modernity. Anyone who read the first volume of The Story of Jews with us two years ago can tell you that Schama has an extraordinary journey planned for us, one that will take us all the way to Shavuot.
