Jackie Richards – Long Term Member

jackie-richardsMuch to my mother’s horror I decided to make my life “back in the smoke” rather than remain in the tranquil leafy outer suburb. After a few years in Hackney, I have lived the rest of my adult life in Tottenham with my husband Peter who is a Kehillah friend. We have two sons Eddie who now lives in South London and Daniel who is in California.

When NLPS had to close I definitely did not want to join a suburban synagogue or one in NW London. I was determined to be part of a vibrant, progressive Jewish community that was compatible with my working and family life. I was one of the founder members of NLPJC, now Kehillah; and led the development during the first five years. It is now a thriving community and I am delighted to have played a part, laying a framework that has now been taken further by others. I am a vice-chair of Liberal Judaism. Kehillah is a community where everyone is valued and cherished and all can participate in a range of different activities relevant to the 21st century. I have the chance to connect with my strong Jewish roots, “let go” and recharge my batteries within a Jewish community so I can then face the challenges that life brings.
