WHAT IS CONNECTIONS?
CONNECTIONS is the international biennial conference of the World Union for Progressive Judaism which brings together Reform, Progressive and Liberal Jews from around the world for four-days of workshops, lectures, prayer, gala events, site visits and more.
Every four years the World Union convenes CONNECTIONS in Jerusalem. Every intervening two years, CONNECTIONS is hosted by one of our regions: the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism (IMPJ); the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) in North America; the World Union for Progressive Judaism – Latin America (WUPJ-LA); the European Union for Progressive Judaism (EUPJ); the Union for Progressive Judaism (UPJ) across Australia, New Zealand and Asia; the South African Union for Progressive Judaism (SAUPJ); and the Former Soviet Union.
This year’s focus, Milestones & Innovation, honors 200 years of Progressive Jewish history while exploring innovation in Jewish life and its impact on the future of our Jewish peoplehood.
