Text Study Group for Adults: After the Death of Moses 
Every Saturday @ 2 PM – 1 Grand Army Plaza 
 
The 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. Our journey begins with the Book of Joshua, those tumbling walls of Jericho, and the Israelites’ appallingly brutal conquest and settlement of Canaan. The following Books will take us through tales of love and myth, of kingdoms and exile.
 
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.
 
For specific meeting location, please email arya@romemu.org

For Kids and Parents:

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.

Get to Know Romemu’s Music!

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!
