Kehilat Shanghai is the city’s progressive Jewish community. We are a diverse, welcoming, multi-faceted community for liberal Jews living in and visiting Shanghai.
Kehilat Shanghai's purpose is to ensure that Jewish people from all backgrounds feel at home in Shanghai today and for generations to come, and to celebrate Jewish culture and traditions in a progressive spirit.
You are all welcome and encouraged to join our community and attend our events.
Kehilat Shanghai is affiliated with and strongly supported by the WUPJ (World Union of Progressive Judaism) and its regional arms: The UPJ (The Union of Progressive Judaism) in Australia and APJ (Asia Progressive Judaism).
Individuals from throughout the Jewish diaspora, as well as corporate donors, partner with us to build, maintain and sustain our community.
Over the past eight years Kehilat Shanghai has grown into a vibrant and welcoming progressive Jewish community. Through the dedication of our members we offer a variety of Jewish education programs, social clubs, community Shabbat dinners, professional networking opportunities, Jewish holiday services and celebrations and much more. Contact us for more information about the programs and services we offer.
