Welcome from the Chairperson

Introducing chairperson: Bernie Edelman-Green

I immigrated to Israel in 1984 with my wife, and our one-year old son Raphi in 1984. We soon found our home in Kfar Saba.

I come from an Orthodox background and my wife, Judith, from a Reform background. We were looking for an egalitarian community and we discovered Hod veHadar, which was meeting in a school at the time. Then, 26 years ago we moved to the current building.

Over the years the community has become part of our family. We have celebrated life-cycle events, including the births of two daughters, bar and bat mitzvahs, two weddings and the birth of grandchildren. Corona was a crisis for the congregation, but we are back to almost normal activities. Everyone is invited to enjoy a warm, tolerant community that will welcome you with open arms.
