What we do

Our Mission

Serve the community

Our weekday and weekend gatherings take a lot of people to make them work, from the planning and coordination to those that meet and greet. Youth and adults are welcome to volunteer!

Serve the city

Rabbi Rashi Simon has a regular commute into the heart of London to engage top professionals on their own ground with words of thought and inspiration. Contact us to find out more.

Serve the world

Our foreign trips instil awe and admiration of the unique Jewish history around Europe. Expert tour guides walk us through the narrow cobble streets of bygone eras bringing it alive with folktale and lore.

the community

We believe in building a place that welcomes all

Together Rabbi and Mrs Simon have taught many hundreds of young Londoners who are interested in finding out more about their Jewish heritage. Since opening the doors of the Kesher Kehillah at its current premises, 933 Finchley Road NW11, the Simons have created a community which is welcoming to Jews of all levels of observance in an environment that is halakhically authentic, intellectually stimulating and spiritually fulfilling. Kesher caters to singles, couples and young families, with a variety of programs to suit everyone, from young to old(er).

Questions and Answers

Ask the Rabbi: Quinoa on Pesach
Dear Rabbi Simon,
Where do you stand on quinoa (and the kitniyot ban) for Pesach?
Many thanks,
Tzippy
***
Dear Tzippy,
In line with other American authorities, I am in favour of quinoa. Although I reject completely the voices (mostly from Israel) seeking to abolish the ban on kitniyot entirely, IMO we do not need to include in the prohibition pseudo-grains that were unknown in the Old World until modern times. Best to buy with a Pesach hechsher though, to be free of any possible wheat contamination.
Rabbi Rashi Simon
