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 gal whom did not learn enough about Judaism over the years, but since I am Jewish I still would lstill ike to try. This year I tried to follow the rules of Passover as much as possible. I tried to put on a seder with my husband, read some prayers, and learned while reading from the Hagadah. Tomorrow is Easter and my friend would like for me to attend. Would it be permissable to attend if I am still within the eight days of Passover.
Wendy, Different people would give different answers to this question, but I can tell you that many people in interfaith relationships do attend Easter dinners and are able to continue to follow the Passover dietary restrictions as they would otherwise. For some people that means just not eating bread; for others it means bringing their own kosher for Passover food. Good luck, Ed Case
