The UPJ urges you to donate to the Netzer Appeal - no donation is too small. Netzer has provided positive and vibrant Jewish experiences for our community and its youth for 40 years. Through Netzer, participants engage with their Jewish identify, make lifelong friends and become leaders of our community. With your help and generosity, we can support every young person who wishes to embrace their Jewish identity and develop their leadership skills.

UPJ congregations throughout Australia, New Zealand and Singapore are preparing to use for the first time our long-awaited new machzorim, Mishkan T'shuvah, for the High Holy Days. We are truly grateful for the years of work by the Editorial Team co-led by Rabbi Jonathan Keren-Black and Rabbi Dr John Simon Levi AM and our hard-working Business Group. The machzorim have been delivered to UPJ congregations, ready to inspire our prayers on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
