KK Members reUnited among the Bluebells

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.
