Contrary to their name, the ROMEOs do more than dine together. Beyond socializing at a different restaurant every other week (when there’s not a pandemic), the ROMEOs regularly collect tzedakah and since 2013 have chaired the Temple’s Break-the-Fast.
The ROMEOs and their Juliets also have shared their culinary skills with our members during delicious pasta dinner fundraisers and a Purim Carnival lunch. They’ve hosted the Temple’s Hanukkah dinner, Second Seder, and a congregational BBQ before our outdoor Friday Night Live service, too.
The group was organized in 2012 to provide a social opportunity for men in the congregation to meet regularly for lunch and to share stories, meals and friendship, as well as to help each other out when a need arises and to support worthy causes.
