Romemu in Brooklyn

Welcome, Brooklynites

We are happy to invite you into Romemu Brooklyn, an emergent community that is open to all who are interested in exploring and creating elevated Jewish experiences for all.

The Romemu Brooklyn community is currently gathering on a monthly basis from October to May for Kabbalat Shabbat services and potluck dinners. In June, the Brooklyn community will join Romemu in Manhattan for a special Kabbalat Shabbat. 

Upcoming Kabbalat Shabbat Services & Potluck Dinners

Now you can experience all the spirituality and joy of a Romemu Friday night in an exciting additional location. Brooklyn services occur on the third Friday of every month from October 2017 through May 2018. Whether you are a Brooklynite seeking elevated Jewish communal experiences closer to home, or a Romemu member interested in our new Brooklyn experience, all are warmly welcomed.

Note: All services at Romemu in Manhattan will go on as scheduled.

For kids and parents:

It’s a blessing to have so many next-gens amongst us. It’s also a challenge (that we’re up for!) to foster and protect the spiritual space of the Kabbalat Shabbat service. 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. We encourage families to sit together and the young ones who cannot maintain quiet, respectful participation to take advantage of options outside the sanctuary.

Good news! Israeli shinshinim (youth emissaries) will offer ,fun Shabbat activities for kids 5 and up during the service and after dinner. If you have children ages 4 and under, we will have babysitting for $10/child.

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!
