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.
MAZEL TOV!! I too, am a Jew by choice. I too, converted in my 40th year! It’s apropros that we both wandered a spiritual desert for 40 yrs. I have never doubted that this is the right, the ONLY choice for me. I am part of an incredible religious family, and after more than a decade, I now read Torah on a regular basis! I came alive when I entered the mikveh….go ahead and cry when it’s your turn. It’s a time for those joyous tears!! CONGRATULATIONS!
