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!
