Welcome To
CONGREGATION RODEPH SHOLOM
Rodeph Sholom is an extended family of people who care about each other and our community. We strive to educate and inspire children, youth, and adults to participate actively in worship, Torah study, and Jewish life experience, and to put Reform Jewish religious and ethical principles into action. We seek to enrich the lives of our members, to contribute to the continuance and vitality of the Jewish people, and to help repair the world.
Erev Shabbat

Congregational Service, 6:00 PM

Shabbat Morning

Torah Study, 8:45 AM - 9:45 AM

Congregational Service, 10:00 AM

Chapel Service, 10:15 AM

During Torah Study, join fellow congregants for a lively discussion of Torah and other books of the Hebrew Bible each Saturday morning at 8:45 AM. The study ends in time for the morning Shabbat service. As with our Shabbat services, newcomers and visitors are invited to study with us.
The Chapel Minyan also offers members of the congregation the opportunity to sharpen their skills in chanting Torah or Haftarah. Instead of a sermon, our Rabbis moderate a group discussion of the weekly Torah portion and guide our study of related rabbinic texts.
