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.
I think it’s great your daughter is questioning these things at such a young age. It sounds like you feel some apprehension about the little brother/sister issue, because you have some control over that one. But what if your daughter prayed to G-d about something else, like world peace, or an A on the test, or anything else you don’t really have control over. You’d pretty much still have to give the same explanation – that your daughter should pray, and even if things don’t end up her way, it does not mean she was not being heard. And that even for grown ups things don’t always turn out the way they want. In this specific case, you might also want to ask why is it she really wants a little brother or a sister. The answer may be revealing and the issue may have another solution.
