This booklet explains the history of Hanukkah, the symbolism and significance of lighting candles for eight nights, the blessings that accompany the lighting of the candles, the holiday's foods, the game of dreidels, and more!
Romemu (roh·meh·moo) seeks to integrate body, mind, and soul in Jewish practice. This is a Judaism that will ignite your Spirit. We are a progressive, fully egalitarian community committed to tikkun olam, or social action, and to service that flows from an identification with the sacredness of all life.
“A Light Through the Ages” tells the meaning of Chanukah through story and song. With musicians from Zamir Chorale of Boston, Joshua Jacobson artistic director and original story by Rabbi Howard A. Berman of Central Reform Temple, this event concludes with a dramatic candle light ceremony. A festive reception follows.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Thanks for sharing the article. After reading it, I thought of this: “Frontline, From Jesus to Christ…The First Christians” at PBS.org here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/religion/
I think you, your daughter, and your husband might gain a great deal from this series as it delves into the cultural, religious, and political elements that Judaism faced 2,000 years ago under hegemony of Roman Empire – and how Christianity broke and moved away from Judaism, morphing into a dominant social, political, and religious force under Constantine. The 4 parts to this series are brilliant, well-produced, and instructive on many levels. I think it will help your daughter understand the cultural nuances between the proponents of both Judaism and Christianity.
