Rabbi Sergio Bergman will be the featured speaker for the UPJ Biennial, and we are truly inspired by his his many accomplishments. Rabbi Bergman recently said: "I prefer not to use energy on internal divisions (e.g. between Orthodox and Progressive]. I want to welcome those Jews who feel they do not belong. Today, we need to be resilient, flexible and open-minded, especially post-COVID-19. It's a catalyst for change. It's very Jewish, from every bad thing to make a good one."
