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.
Thank you for the fantastic suggestions for nurturing the Jewish identity of grandchildren in interfaith families! I would also like to suggest the book Twenty Things for Grandparents of Interfaith Grandchildren to Do (and Not Do) to Nurture Jewish Identity in Their Grandchildren by Rabbi Kerry Olitzky and Paul Golin of the Jewish Outreach Institute.
The Jewish Outreach Institute offers the Grandparents Circle program to give grandparents the tools they need to nurture the Jewish identities of grandchildren in interfaith homes. This program includes a national listserve, a five-session course available in many communities in the United States and Canada, and a website. To learn more about how the Jewish Outreach Institute supports grandparents of grandchildren in interfaith homes, visit the Grandparents Circle website at http://www.grandparentscircle.org.
