Progressive Jews celebrate the notion that there is more than one way to be Jewish
We affirm the main areas of traditional Jewish experience – Shabbat, festivals, life transitions from cradle to grave, education, kashrut, acts of chesed – while welcoming innovative and fresh approaches to them.
What is Progressive Judaism
UPJ declares strong support for Israel
The Union for Progressive Judaism, ARZA Australia, the Assembly of Rabbis and Cantors of Australia, New Zealand and Asia, and Netzer Australia wish to declare their strong support for the people of Israel as they conduct the necessary war against Hamas to protect Israeli citizens, following the unprecedented attack by Hamas on 7 October 2023.
We stand with Israel and its citizens and pray for the safety of the brave Israelis serving in the Israel Defence Forces and pray that the hostages will soon be returned home safely.
