Kehila קהילה [Hebrew] n. (pl. kehilot קהילות):
Jewish Community.  Used to refer to a Jewish community, anywhere in the world.

JewishGen KehilaLinks (formerly "ShtetLinks") is a project facilitating web pages commemorating the places where Jews have lived.  KehilaLinks provides the opportunity for anyone with an interest in a place to create web pages about that community.  These web pages may contain information, pictures, databases, and links to other sources providing data about that place.
