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.
Join the San Diego Jewish Film Festival and Jewish Family Service to explore the interfaith family experience, including a screening of the film Out of Faith followed by a facilitated discussion. Out of Faith is a feature-length documentary that follows three generations as they struggle with complex and emotionally-charged conflicts over intermarriage, familial duty, ethnic identity, and cultural continuity and survival.
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 looking for a sponsering rabbi who would help me with the conversion process in the Dallas area. I am soon moving to Grand Prairie, TX. I grew up in a interfaith household, with a muslim father and a catholic mother, in Germany. Neither could ever touch me. My mother started ancestor research a few years ago and we found out that a lot of family members, beginning with my great-grandmother were Jewish. I had encounters with Judaism time and time again, since i was a teenager. To make sure, i searched in various denominations of the christian faith first, because that’s what i grew up with. Nothing could ever get me to believe in Jesus. I am married to a non Jew.
My desire to convert and live a jewish life is so strong, that it gives me sleepless nights. I am at a point where i need a rabbi to help me further my education. I don’t know anybody who could help me, so i would be very greatful for any suggestions!
