Following the decision of several congregations in Germany to resign their membership in the Union progressiver Juden K.d.ö.R. (UPJ), we confirm that the membership in the European Union for Progressive Judaism (EUPJ) of the following congregations automatically ended on 31 December 2023:

  • Liberale Jüdische Gemeinde Hannover
