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.

Dr X is a miserable excuse for a doctor, a man and a Jew and a mohel. I apologise to Laurel (and all the other Laurels out there) that Doctor X (and all who think and act like him) seemingly continue to decide for the entire Jewish world who is or isnâ€™t a Jew. Judaism would a lot better off with more Laurel Snyders and many less Dr Xs.
