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.
Thank you so much for writing this article. I’ve often wondered what I would do when my non-Jewish husband died (hopefully far in the future). I can’t imagine mourning him outside of what I know, which is the Jewish way of mourning.
You should ask the widow what she would like to do since you can’t really make assumptions about that. I think however that the Jewish tradition of supplying a grieving family with meals during the week of shiva is something that would be appreciated by any family in mourning.
