Congregation Rodeph Sholom has gone “virtual”—all of our services and programs are streaming online only. But that doesn’t mean we have stopped providing spaces for us to learn, grow, and connect together! We are still here for you, and still ready to be your congregation—your spiritual home—even in these uncertain times.

Most of our virtual events will require registration and/or the use of a passwordAn added benefit of registering ahead of time is that you will receive an email reminder and have the option to add the event to your personal calendar. Please refer to your weekly CRS Live email for information about how to access events that require a password.
