By popular demand, Lev Taylor, Reform Judaism’s student rabbi returned to take a service at Kehillat Kernow for Shabbat Va-ethannan on Saturday, 17th of August. Lev is one of four rabbinical visits we have had to take services this Spring and Summer. Others were: Rabbi Maurice Michaels, Rabbi Amanda Golby, David and Hannah Jacobs.
Lev, who is entering his third year of graduate studies at Leo Baeck College in the Sternberg Centre in North Finchley, has become a favourite of our community after his visit during the last High Holy Days for the Yom Kippur services. His service this go round was warmly received by many KK members who made a special effort to be there and also to deliver a fine, robust Kiddush luncheon following the Shabbat morning Torah service.
Following the service, Lev visited the Penzance Jewish Cemetery with his hosts for the weekend, Pat and Leslie Lipert. Many thanks to Lev for returning to our community and for giving us an inspiring service and sermon.
