Welcome Back Shir Yaakov This Shabbat!
Join Romemu in welcoming back Shir Yaakov Feit, founder and leader of our sister community, Kol Hai Congregation in New Paltz. Shir Yaakov was Romemu's Musical Director from 2012-2014 and many of Romemu's most beloved songs are Shir's compositions.

Shir Yaakov joins us this Shabbat to lead Romemu in joyful prayer. We are grateful for the continued connection and deep friendship we share with Shir and his community, Kol Hai and we eagerly look forward to future collaborations.

"Hearts & Minds" – Rabbi Mira's Sermon
What does Torah have to say about entering a new land? How do we unite our hearts and minds and get to a place where we see our present-day country as a welcoming place? Just as the Promised Land was for the Israelites, shouldn't our country be a welcoming place for all immigrants, no matter where they are from?
