Rabbi Sharfman and Congregation Kehillah in the Jewish News:

Congregants prepare for very different High Holy Days services:

“It’s realizing that online looks different and feels different,” said Rabbi Bonnie Sharfman of Congregation Kehillah. “This is true of High Holy Days services, it’s true of Shabbat services, it’s true of our classes, of our religious schools and of Jewish life in general.”

In a second article:

Congregants renew synagogue memberships and seek meaning in uncertain times.

Rabbi Sharfman was quoted as indicating our congregation is on track for membership renewal.

“We have been very active and very responsive, and so that’s why I’m not surprised that our membership is consistent,” said Rabbi Bonnie Sharfman. She’s seen people donate more and renew their membership at higher dues levels than she expected, and “I think it’s out of a sense of connection. We’ve worked really hard and diligently because we have a tremendous sense of community in our congregation for each other.”

The Congregation Kehillah Mission

The purpose of Congregation Kehillah is to provide a “Community” for Jews and their spouses/partners and families to come together for purposes of fostering their Jewish identity, living Jewishly, pursuing social justice and engaging in learning, all within a nurturing environment, more personal than institutional, designed to promote spirituality, camaraderie and respect for the needs of others.

Normally, we’d invite you to celebrate with an Oneg.  But while we’re currently not gathering, and you are (we hope!) spending most of your time at home, remember to use Amazon Smile when you buy on Amazon.
