Welcome to the United Hebrew Congregation, Singapore's progressive Jewish community.

In addition to regular Friday and Saturday night services, Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations and UHC Sunday school, the UHC community has enjoyed coming together to celebrate the following events and more over the past few months: 

High Holiday services, dinner in the Sukkah, dancing at Simchat Torah, Chanukah parties big and small, an amazing weekend with the world and our neighbours at the Asia Progressive Judaism summit, a Gala dinner to celebrate 25 years of UHC, Tu Bishvat in the Botanic Gardens, Purim at UHC School and two communal Seders.

Welcome Rabbi Miriam and Beni Wajnberg

It is with tremendous pleasure that we announce that after a search process which began in September 2019 and spanned the globe for talent, the Rabbinical Search Committee (RSC) unanimously recommended and the UHC Management Committee unanimously selected Rabbis Beni and Miriam Wajnberg to join the United Hebrew Congregation (Singapore) as our second resident rabbis. We are delighted that they have agreed to serve and they will look to relocate to Singapore with their two sons Rafi and Shai and their dog Tucker, assuming no travel restrictions, in June of  2021, in the interim serving us remotely so we can offer a full program with rabbinical support until their physical arrival in Singapore!
