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. 


Kehillat Beijing is entirely dependent on the contributions, membership dues, and school fees of our community. All of our services and special events are organized by volunteers. As a growing but small congregation of Jews in the world’s most populous country, we welcome and urge your support. Your help can make a real impact on Jewish life in China today.

Your donation will continue to make Jewish life in Beijing possible. All donations and membership dues are tax-deductible for U.S. taxpayers.
