The Hong Kong Jewish community is very strong and represents a diverse collective spread between two areas: Mid-Level and Kowloon. There is a Chabad, a Progressive (Reform) community (UJC), and two Orthodox communities in Mid-Level, as well as several small communities and a Chabad in Kowloon. All of the communities host various young adult programming, which is open to study abroad students. Despite the community’s strength and size, there are few options for Kosher food. There are, however, many opportunities for students to take leadership roles in the community, and the JCC provides KAHAL students with a special reduced membership rate.  Connect with KAHAL to find your Jewish home in Hong Kong!
