As part of Romemu’s commitment to “widen the tent” and in recognition of the diversity of our community, the Multi-Faith Initiatives program at Romemu seeks to support and nourish interfaith couples and families, those who identify with other religious traditions, those who grew up Jewish and still feel a “stranger” at times in Jewish settings, and the “multi-faith curious.” We seek to meet the needs of these groups by providing pastoral, educational, social, and spiritual programing. We also seek to expand the centrality of deep respect for all faith traditions, knowing that the diversity of traditions and practices in our midst is a gift that can strengthen and support us all in living holy lives.

Please contact Rev. Eleanor Harrison Bregman, the Director of Multi-Faith Initiatives, with any questions about our programs below or if you would like to meet to discuss issues related to being an interfaith couple or being a part of Romemu when you do not identify as Jewish.
Fourth Wednesday of Every Month – 7:00-9:00PM
NEXT DATE: June 10th – “End of the Year” picnic in the park together
Are you an interfaith couple wrestling with how you will get married, raise children and celebrate holidays? Interested in Judaism or Romemu but grew up in another tradition? Identify as Jewish but still feel “a stranger” in Jewish settings? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, come and join a wonderfully diverse part of the Romemu community for our monthly discussion series. These sessions, primarily led by Rev. Eleanor Harrison Bregman, will continue to be a non-judgmental space to explore the experiences, frustrations, challenges and blessings of navigating holiday and life cycle events, parenting, and nurturing you own spiritual life in the midst of our multi-faith lives and world. While this is a series and we hope you attend them all, we understand that “life happens” and we also welcome newcomers to join us at any time.
Open to members and non-members alike, free and open to all. To register for individual sessions and for more information about each session, contact Rev. Eleanor Harrison Bregman. Location given upon registration.
Rev. Eleanor is also available for pastoral care meetings should you wish to explore any of these issues more individually and/or as a couple.
