Kehilat Shanghai 5780 Capital Campaign
Since Kehilat Shanghai was founded eight years ago our mission has remained the same: to be a diverse, welcoming, multi-faceted community for progressive and open-minded Jews living in and visiting Shanghai.
Today, KS has grown to provide more than 100 different regular programs, including weekly Shabbat services & dinners, Passover, Hanukah, Purim, Shavuot and High Holiday services and activities. Tov!, our flagship education program for children (and adults too) provides Jewish culture, history, and traditions to our children. Tov! also allows our kids to learn Hebrew, prepare for their bar/bat-mitzvahs and grow in their understanding of what it means to be Jewish. This October, several of our Tov! students will participate in our community B’nai Mitvah.
KS actively supports, runs and/or collaborates with Limmud, the Jewish Young Professionals Network, Moishe House, Pj Library, Scotch & Cigars and many other organizations and events to further develop an inclusive Jewish life for all Jews living in or visiting Shanghai with their friends and families.
We have just welcomed our new coordinator Julia Ullman, who brings a high level of professionalism, deep knowledge of Jewish life and traditions and strong community development experiences.
Your (all-volunteer) board works tirelessly to ensure that Kehilat Shanghai meets the ever-increasing demands of this city’s progressive, diverse and multi-faceted Jewish community. We are preparing a slew of exciting initiatives for the year 5780.
