 Why join Kehilat Shanghai?  

Simply put, because We Need You!

And because you will make a difference!  


Your membership will help to build a progressive Jewish community here in Shanghai, step by step, person by person, for all of us who are here now and for the future generations of Jews from all over the world who will call Shanghai home.


Your membership contribution enables us to:

Organize events, bring Rabbis, allow others to attend, support children's education, and have a community coordinator.

  •  Hold events that bring progressive Jews of Shanghai together---major holidays, weekly Shabbat dinners, speakers and social gatherings.
  •  Bring Rabbis to Shanghai to help us celebrate major Jewish holidays throughout the year.
  •  Allow Jews to attend our events regardless of their financial ability (especially students far from home!)
  •  Support the development of progressive Jewish educational offerings for the youngest generation of Jews in Shanghai.
  •  Hire a full time coordinator to support our volunteers and our Board.



We want to be your Jewish ‘home away from home!’

We can only be here for you with your support, please join us today!  As we grow, we aim to have a full-time Rabbi, and a place for learning and services.
