Romemu Brooklyn comes together for Kabbalat Shabbat and Saturday Morning services twice a month. All are warmly welcomed.
All Kabbalat Shabbats will take place at the Berkeley Carroll School at 152 Sterling Place in Park Slope.
Doors open at 6 PM, services begin at 6:30 PM, and there is usually a catered dinner and potluck dessert following the service that requires pre-registration. Babysitting for tots, interactive children’s activities, and teen programming is available on-site.
All Saturday Morning Shabbats will take place at 1 Grand Army Plaza in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Doors open at 9:30 AM, services begin at 10 AM. Babysitting for tots and interactive children’s activities for kids 5-12 is available on-site.
At this event, we will welcome Green Rebel director Harvey Stein (who also lives in Jerusalem), as he shows several powerful clips from the film and leads discussion about crucial issues: solar energy and climate change; the challenges of bringing clean development to Africa; and Israel being (as Abramowitz calls it) a “sustainable Light unto the Nations”.
The written Torah ends with the death of Moses, but the history of the Jewish people has just begun. Our weekly peer-led gatherings explore the books of writings and prophets that make up the rest of the Jewish Bible through a variety of historical, literary, and spiritual lenses. After two “preview” sessions on Ruth this fall, our journey through tales of conquest and decadence, poetry and myth, and kingdoms and exile begins in January.
This study group is offered free of charge and drop-ins are welcome. No prior familiarity with the texts is necessary. We encourage people of all religious backgrounds to join.

Celebrate Hanukkah at Hannah Senesh with an afternoon of art, music, and other festivities! Romemu Brooklyn will be offering arts workshops for children ages 2-10.
There is a small but mighty team of Brooklynites working closely with the Romemu team to create all the Romemu Brooklyn gatherings. We are also looking for suggestions about nearby locations to host our services in the future. For recommendations, feedback, and inquiries about how to lend your time and talent to Romemu Brooklyn, please email Arya Samuelson at email@example.com
It’s a blessing to have so many next-gens amongst us. We ask all parents to take responsibility for their children not disrupting the kavannah (the intention) of the clergy and adults singing and praying together.
Childcare is provided at all Shabbat services. This includes babysitting for toddlers, interactive children’s games and activities, and empowering teen programming.
On Shabbat evenings, we encourage children and youth to stay with their families in the service through Lecha Dodi and then to rejoin for the closing song.
On Shabbat mornings, we encourage children and youth to stay with their families through the priestly blessing and then to rejoin for the closing song.
Romemu is a place where music inspires us to feel and live deeply, to grow more empowered, to connect from the heart, and to be of service in the world. We’re happy to offer resources to help you learn some of our beautiful music. Below, please find recordings of five of our favorite Kabbalat Shabbat songs. Of course, it can also be a powerful experience to come to Romemu services with no prior musical knowledge and let the beautiful service wash over you. We invite you to make your experience entirely your own!
