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'm a 20 yrs old woman. My father is jewish and my mother is from catholic background. They are divorced and my mother remarried to my step-father, who is also catholic. They have always supported Israel and the Jews but 2-3 years ago I started to be interested in judaism. They were not happy. Half year ago I decided to go to Israel with a scholarship. THey were angry, but than I did not go, because my grandmother (the Jewish one) convinced me that should go to a Taglit trip first. So this summer I went to Israel and I still want to spend a few months there with that scholarship. They were quite angry, but they seemed accepting it. But now I needed some papers from my mother and my step-father and the quarrel broke out. They are totally against this journey. They think it is dangerous and don't understand, why do I want to go to Israel. I tried to explain it, but they always say 'You are brainwashed' 'It is just bullshit'. They probably give me those papers, but I want to explain them my feelings. Do you have any idea, how?
