Challenges

Challenges Facing the Bermudian Jewish Community

Diversity

Some of our challenges include meeting the needs of our diverse membership, which is made up of Sephardim and Askenazim who are Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform and come from 15 different countries.

Kosher

A few families keep kosher and have made arrangements to have kosher products brought to Bermuda

Children

Bringing up children in a country where Christian prayers are said in both the public and most private schools has been another challenge for us.

Small Numbers/Transient

With the changing membership of our community due to leaving the island and new arrivals, we are constantly adjusting our membership levels and our Jewish approach to meet the needs of current membership families at that point in time.
