A Note from Our Gala Chairs



We are honored to be chairing Many Candles, One World, a virtual Chanukah Celebration and Benefit to support the World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ). We hope you’ll join us for your front row seat for a celebrity-filled evening of music and tradition from around the globe.

We are so passionate about WUPJ and hope that you’ll agree to support this incredible organization that makes it possible for all Progressive Jews to practice a creative and meaningful Judaism, no matter where they choose to live.

Where your Contribution Goes – the WUPJ Education Fund for the Future

Funds raised this evening will establish a new “WUPJ Education Fund for the Future” to engage every family member, at every age, and stage of life.

The fund will provide scholarships for individuals to attend camps, schools, and training programs – all will focus on deepening the knowledge and confidence needed to create a generation of extraordinary professional and volunteer leaders to transform our communities.
