'Kehillat kasuku was founded 18 years ago,and offcourse we are happy to stay forever.Am Yehudah Ben Yosaiv ,community Leader and educator.
Our community is in central part ,in kenya highlands around mt kenya region.this is a 2-3 hours drive from Nairobi city.We are 20 families here,more story at http://www.timesofisrael.com/the-isolated-jews-of-rural-kenya-starting-from-aleph-with-a-lulav-and-etrog/
Our mission is to create an accessible spritual home,where all jews,regardless of affiliation or background,are warmly embraced and welcomed into our community. In this 18 years we have been praying together,study,socilize and dine together as families of Israel.We are the only shomer Shabbat Synagogue in our area and such play a vital role.We are proud jews and have taken a lead to bring peace and unity in our village that is of many differnt faith.
In the previous years,our small community have grown and expanded.And in all the growing numbers it rely on this community to have a beautiful shabbat experince together.After a long while having our temporaly tent like synagogue.we found it was worthy build a permanent Shul that will shelter us from cold,wind,hot sun,and heavy rain that floods in our synagogue and for our growing children.Is very unfortunate sometimes in all this weathers we fail to do the services due to harsh condition of either. ...'
