The congregation of Kol Shofar of San Rafael, located a few miles north of San Francisco, which was forced recently to vacate its meeting place in the San Rafael Jewish Community Center, will be worshipping for the next two months in the Aldersgate Methodist Church at the invitation of the Methodist congregation.
