Hi Ken and Flora,

Sorry, wanted to reply to this sooner but had an issue logging in.

I think the major problem for me is that there are no Jews in the area. Setting up a Havurah becomes really hard to do because in some areas, there is also a bit of anti-Semitism with which to contend, or at the least, people don’t understand the point of having a group discussing the Jewish roots of the faith. I think a way forward might be to start up localised Zoom versions in these instances, or to start “fellowship” type groups or bible studies with a Jewish slant.

All best,

Angela
