Join attendees from around the Union for Progressive Judaism region - and worldwide - as the UPJ welcomes back our community and friends to join IN PERSON for an enriching and exciting conference.
The Beatles sang “8 Days a Week”, Shakespeare wrote “forever and a day” and today we say “24/7” – the UPJ Biennial titled “Progressing Judaism: 8 Days a Week” will explore how we can expand our Jewish values beyond our Shabbat observance, incorporating our Jewish identity into a myriad of interactions with the world around us. The Biennial Conference will focus on being Jewish in today's complex, modern, fast-paced society, and will feature Rabbi Sergio Bergman, president of the World Union for Progressive Judaism, as well as dynamic and engaging speakers from our region and beyond.
