Kehillat Beijing

Founded in 1979, the Kehillat Beijing Foundation supports Jewish life in Beijing, around China, and across the world. We host Shabbat services and dinner each and every Friday night beginning at 7:00pm, in addition to a range of holiday celebrations, educational opportunities, and community retreats and excursions into one of the world's greatest cities.

A generous group of donors spearheaded by Stacy Palestrant has offered to match dollar for dollar every donation made by the end of June up to a cap of $3,500. The best news? If we unlock the full match, we will have raised enough to cover 100% of  Kehillat's projected 2014 expenses for Shabbat meal subsidies. No gift is too small!
