Featured Committee: Production & Sound Committee

In Gratitude We Thank You!

Historic, Momentous & Extraordinary

Last Sunday Romemu was honored to have Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and Rabbi Joseph Telushkin join us for a panel discussion with Rabbi Ingber. Over 600 people were in attendance. The learning was tremendous. Monday, June 13, Romemu celebrated five years of success at the Romemu Gala, bringing Reb Zalman for a second night into our community. We rasied $40,000 with your love and support. We want to congratulate Rabbi David Ingber for receiving the first Reb Zalman Awared for Visionary Leadership.

Thank you to everyone who made this night possible. A special thank you to.... Romemu's first Sound Committee led by Andrew Finkel and Jonathan Bickoff meets once a month to ensure the Romemu congregation hears and experiences every holy sound of prayer and music. They invite you to join this production volunteer group even if you think you lack the technical skills. A willingness to help, learn and serve is all that is necessary to help.
