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 am a Jewish adult who was raised non-religious by non-religious parents from Jewish and Christian backgrounds. We had a christmas tree & lit a chanukah menorah. My Jewish identity was *not* formed in opposition to christmas, which many of my peers did experience. I think this gave me the freedom to fully choose Judaism as my path as an adult. I don’t have a tree in my home now, because my partner is also Jewish, but our son gets to experience christmas with my relatives and I’m glad he does. I don’t know what he will choose religiously when he is older, but I hope it will be a choice he makes freely without obligation, opposition, or fear.
