Biennial Program 2022

The Biennial program was developed following a series of workshops held in 2021, led by our Chair Susan Kadar. Inspired by the Beatles song, 8 Days a Week, the seven workshops explored ways to bring our Progressive Jewish identities into the seven days of the week, and beyond. Attendees of the online workshops were from the full range of our UPJ congregations in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
