Elia lives alone in a flat on the same floor as his ex- wife Giovanna, with whom he is still secretly in love.

Reaching from the river town of Yardley in the east to Doylestown in the west, picturesque New Hope to the north and Bensalem to the south, Bucks County is home to a vibrant and diverse Jewish community with 16 synagogues serving Conservative, Orthodox, Reconstructionist, and Reform denominations as well as learning centers and other Jewish organizations.
The Bucks County Kehillah works with all these groups planning programs that have included Jewish and Israel festivals, live music concerts, thought-provoking speakers, collaborative holiday celebrations like its annual, public Chanukah candle lighting, a Kehillah youth basketball league and much more.
The Kehillah holds monthly meetings—to which all are welcome—made up of interested Jewish community members, vibrant volunteers, synagogue representatives, rabbis, and educators. It is a great opportunity to share ideas and hear what is going on in Jewish Bucks County.
