The Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations (UMJC) is a Messianic Jewish organization which connects and supports Messianic Jewish congregations, mostly in the United States. It has about 80 member congregations.[1] It was founded in 1979 by a group of 19 congregations in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.[2] The UMJC and the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America are the two largest Messianic Jewish groups in the United States.[3]
