Congregation Rodeph Sholom successfully achieved a quorum and held our 176th annual meeting on May 21, 2018. This was a year of change—after leading us to and through our 175th anniversary celebration, Board President Martin Flumenbaum stepped down and is now serving as Chair of the Board. Our new President, Robert Steinman, has grown up, married and started a family as a CRS member, which he reflected upon in his acceptance speech. Rabbi Juliana Karol was officially welcomed as new Assistant Rabbi. Gemilut Hassadim recipients this year were volunteers for Backpack Buddies, Days for Girls, and Choir Assistants.
