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.
My family history expert friend, Michael, tells me that I may have confused some info on Julia Louis-Dreyfus when we were discussing two different actresses of similar background. In summary: the American born paternal grandmother of Julia-Louis Dreyfus was the daughter of a possibly Jewish, Brazilian-born businessman and an almost certainly not Jewish, Mexico-born mother. This paternal grandmother, Dolores Neubauer, was married to two Jewish men (Julia’s grandfather, and a second Jewish husband from a famous Sephardi family). However, she may not have been Jewish “at all.” Therefore, Julia may have “just” one Jewish grandparent–her paternal grandfather. This may partially explain why she does not define herself as being Jewish or of interfaith background. Sorry for the error.
