Our community comes together every Friday evening at 6:00 pm for Erev Shabbat services. Filled with music and joyful prayer, this is a wonderful way to end the week, reconnect with friends and family, and welcome Shabbat. Mark your calendars for the following special Erev Shabbat services:
Consecration honors and welcomes children who are embarking on their formal Jewish educational journey at Congregation Rodeph Sholom from both the Religious School and Rodeph Sholom School.
Shir Chadash is a once-a-month lively, musical Erev Shabbat service led by our wonderful cantors and clergy alongside outstanding instrumentalists on keyboard, wind instruments, and drums. Birthdays are celebrated with Rodeph Sholom chocolate bars—all ages welcome!
An uplifting, joyful, musical service celebrating the values of justice and equality. Featuring guest gospel choirs, this will be an evening of inspiration.
Every year we honor a congregant who has demonstrated extraordinary dedication in serving our community with this award.
Following a celebratory Shir Chadash service of the Festival of Lights, join us for candle-lighting, dreidl spinning, and delicious latkes! Sponsored by Brotherhood.
Rabbi Daniel Freelander, President of the World Union for Progressive Judaism, will speak on the current status of progressive Judaism around the world and in Israel. After services, join us for the Brotherhood Film Festival.
Our Spring Shabbaton features the uplifting and enchanting music of Nava Tehila on Erev Shabbat and throughout the weekend.
We also join with Rabbi Spratt and Cantor De Lowe and their families to express our gratitude and appreciation for their 10 years at Rodeph Sholom.
This inclusive service brings the core philosophies and structure of our Shireinu service for people with special needs into our Erev Shabbat prayer at CRS. This service is intended to create comfort and belonging for all, with sensory-sensitivity, ASL interpretation, visual aids, and a quiet room.
This milestone celebration is a culmination of the year-long exploration our 10th graders have made through the Confirmation program and trip to Berlin. The moving service is led by our Confirmands and includes a blessing exchange between the Confirmands and Rodeph Sholom 4th graders, who are just beginning their b’nai mitzvah journey.
Featuring voices and stories from our community, this service celebrates our LGBTQIA+ pride. Held annually during Pride Month, it is a time to join together and celebrate our connection to each other and our values of acceptance and inclusion.
