Romemu in Brooklyn

Experience the High Holy Days with Romemu Brooklyn!

We welcome you to join in creating our first-ever Romemu Brooklyn High Holy Days together! Hazzan Basya Schechter and Rabbi Abby Sosland will be leading us in the Performance Space of Berkeley Carroll School in Park Slope. 

We are offering services on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur. You can be “all in” and register for the series of services or you can register for a single service a la carte. Childcare for children ages 1-4 and youth programming for ages 5-13 will be available during the main services. 

We look forward to starting off our new year with you!

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.

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!
