On Sunday, May 2nd, members of Kehillat Kerow met face to face for the first time in 15 months under glorious blue skies and even more grand bluebells at Enys Gardens outside Penryn. Adam and Melanie Feldman came up with the idea for safe outdoor gathering and fifteen enthusiastic walkers, from ages two to almost 90, members enjoyed catching up with each other sans Zoom. Each group brought provisions, for what’s a Jewish occasion without a nosh? A picnic near a picturesque walled garden amongst the flowers and blossoming trees completed the splendid reunion. Oh happy day; we found a way to meet again.

Congratulations, as well, to Alexandra who lit the candles at our service and attended an Affirmation Service on Saturday morning at her ‘other place’, i.e. Jackson’s Row in Manchester.

This week we start he story of Abraham and Sarah, our wonderful ancestors who are both archetypal Jews and archetypal human beings. Their story and character are especially ours, but we cannot have them totally to ourselves, for they have lessons for all of humanity. They are, too, very human, individual and alive. Last year we spoke about journeys to and from the beginning. This year, we will look at another aspect of their special and universal relevance.
Erev Shabbat service & Kiddush – 6 November @ 6pm led Liz Berg. Shabbat Va-yeira, 20 Cheshvan
Erev Shabbat service & Kiddush – 13 November @ 6pm led by Sharim Atilano. Shabbat Chayyei Sarah, 27 Cheshvan
