HAVEN FOR JEWS IN ASIA
ESTABLISHED 2005. NOW CELEBRATING OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY.
The club was founded by two Bagels from America who wanted to celebrate their Jewish roots, culture and heritage.
The club has since been thriving. It has about 20 active members and a email list of over a hundred folks. There are also many visiting jews that attend meetings and events.
WHY THE NAME ABOUT US
We forget who of our congregation invented that name, but it just stuck to us. The prime reason is, being that we are located/based in a primarily Catholic country, and wish to maintain a relatively low-profile amongst the locals, but still maintain a primarily socially Jewish identity… one that most Jews would “get the hint” of.
This was a name we felt most Jews, regardless of group-affiliation or observance, would easily recognize. It has a friendly social “flavor” as well as hinting to it’s traditional Jewishness.
We are extremely proud of our accomplishments
The AC Jewish have a 2 year history. Below is a listing of our accomplishments Here’s a partial list, of which we should all be extremely proud…
