Abstract

The present study addresses new insights into the interdependent relationship between social and liturgical change by examining the Jewish community in Hong Kong. It shows how social change affects liturgical practice, and how liturgical change, on its turn, leads to social change. The changes of the social are to be considered primarily on the meso level and the micro level. Concerning the liturgical, primarily liturgical practice, i.e. the performance of liturgical services, as well as liturgical attitudes of individuals, liturgical participation and liturgical reception are the focus of the analysis. New forms of liturgical participation in the age of new communication technologies are also presented and their social and liturgical relevance is examined.
