Who We Are

Kehillat Derech Eretz, Harish’s kehilla for English speaking olim and Israelis welcomes families at all stages of life. The community is led by Rabbi Yehoshua Felberg and the community va’ad. 

Rabbi Felberg provides spiritual and pastoral care in English and Hebrew for all members and to the wider community.

In addition to our shabbat and yom tov services there are also regular shiurei Torah by Rabbi Felberg, community members and guest speakers together with social gatherings, tiyulim and activities for children.

For those who are looking for the benefits and variety of a city life but the personal intimacy that a small close knit kehilla can provide Harish provides a fantastic balance.

The kehilla welcomes visitors and we look forward to your visit soon!
