The Sky Within: Integrating Mussar, Astrology and Rosh Hodesh

Alina Bloomgarden loves bridging astrology with Jewish learning. Her intention is to share astrological tools as a way to deepen and enrich our self knowledge and spiritual journey. Including the astrological chart of each participant, the day, time and place of birth, and the position of the new Moon each month are seen as tools in mathematical harmony with our life path. She has studied, practiced and taught astrology for more than 40 years while her career was in the arts. She was a founding producer of Jazz at Lincoln Center and, inspired by the can-do energy at Romemu, launched ”Music on the Inside, Inc.” to bring harmony and hope into the criminal justice system.

Caren Fried has been practicing Mussar for the past 10 years as a student of Alan Morinis.  She has experience facilitating Rosh Hodesh groups and is a committed student of Torah and Kabbalah.  Caren is a clinical social worker, community builder and advocate.  She has a blog called “Notes From An Optimist,”  highlighting people and organizations working on current social problems globally and locally.  Caren is a founding member of Romemu and has served as Board Chair.
