Esteemed honorees Pamela and Peter Takiff have been instrumental in building Romemu’s vision.
Peter served as Romemu’s Board Chair for three years and in that time helped steer Romemu to become a thriving organization reaching thousands of families locally and many more globally. During Peter’s tenure, Romemu introduced consistent livestream services and classes, offering thousands the opportunity to join in and share community beyond the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Before chairing the Board, Peter served as Treasurer, a member of the Executive Committee, and chaired the Development Committee. Most notably, Peter led the successful search for Romemu’s permanent home, instrumental in creating the current Romemu Campus on 105th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. Peter’s ability to stay calm, centered and affable in the midst of chaos makes him an inspiring leader.
Pamela, a talented human rights attorney, has co-led workshops at Romemu to explore the issues of sex trafficking in NYC. This work culminated in a Romemu multi-faith seder inspired by her work. Pamela is an incredible host and has a deep sense of how to cultivate and deepen the community around her. Pamela also brings her beautiful, soulful presence to our shul each Shabbat.
Pamela and Peter’s generosity and outsized hearts have truly catalyzed Romemu to reach new heights. We are inspired by their passion, humility, and kindness, and feel deeply honored to honor them.
All 2019 Benefit donations go to support Romemu’s operating budget bringing dynamic, musical, transformative and immersive Jewish experience to our local and global community. Romemu is a 501c3 registered charity.
