I was very surprised to come across this website. I was evacuated to Penzance from London in 1940 and went to school in Penzance. In those days we were the only Jewish family in the area. There was one other Jewish family in Truro and rumors of one in Falmouth. It was difficult being Jewish in Cornwall in those days. The difficulties related to the local peopleís ignorance and suspicion rather than overt anti-Semitism. The fact that we had a German sounding name didnít help either. We left in 1957 and never returned.
I am delighted to see that a small vibrant Jewish community now exists in Cornwall. Again we have survived! Mazel Tov!

I came across your website during my planning for a six-week retreat/recharge to SW-England immediately following the High Holy Days.
In many ways there appears (@ the Pshat) of a parallel between KK & my tiny shul in NC --- both being geographically in the diaspora of the diaspora. I particularly appreciated your on-line newsletter; your activities and engagement belie your numbers!
If I can manage to avoid having to (once again) postpone the log-awaited trip, I would hope to be able to join a Shabbat minyan.

Shalom Eleichem to all my new friends at Kehillat Kernow. A big thank you for your hospitality and friendship (and kind remarks about my Hebrew blessings!). Everyone made Gerry's Bar Mitzvah a very special, and for me, a very moving and unforgettable occasion. Thank you all for the huge Mitzvah of allowing me to do the Haftarah reading.
It was a true pleasure to meet Pat, Harvey, Gerry (senior) and everyone else who I have heard so much about.
I will be back next time I get to Cornwall.
Shalom, Ahava, Denis.

Kind regards from North London Progressive Jewish Community. Barbara G, one of your members told me about your site. We are a new community too, trying to establish an inner city diverse community. Our website is www.nlpjc.org.uk. Love the way you have combined Hebrew and Cornish in your title. Good luck for the future and Mazel Tov for all your successes so far!! May 1, 2005

How lovely it was to be able to attend the Chanucah party 2004 with my daughter Karen, and grandson Samuel (Sam).Once they are truly settled in a home of their own we look forward to being able to attend shul services as a family. To anyone interested in the synagogue lamps I discovered during 2004 in a Penryn antique store;they are now hanging in the Jewish Museum Camden Town , London. They have been taken out of the display cases in which they were initially shown, and hang proudly over an old Europian Ark. The museum curator tells me that they look so perfect in that setting. We ca only assume that they could have come from the old synagogue in Penzance in 1700/1800 after the shul was closed down. It would be wonderful to learn if this was really so. Alas , to date we are still uncertain.
