On Shabbat morning we gather to discuss a chapter of the TaNaKh (the Hebrew Bible) and how it relates to our understanding of history, culture, faith, and more. Every discussion brings new ideas and conversations, and all voices are welcome and invited to share perspective.
Our Chapel Service is a highly participatory and energetic musical service, offering meaningful worship for those seeking engagement with Jewish prayer and study in a warm and inviting environment. Our rabbis lead a lively discussion of the weekly Torah portion and members of the congregation often chant Torah and Haftarah portions.
The perfect way to start a new week, Havdalah Unplugged features music, stories, and a chance to kick back, breathe deeply, and reflect. This energizing, thoughtful, and connective service is a treasured CRS tradition.
Enrich your Shabbat experience by joining us for post-worship study and lunch. Learn alongside your community as we explore key female figures in the TaNaKh. Discover these women’s untold stories as we raise up voices of our tradition that are seldom heard. Hebrew familiarity is not required; curiosity is! Attend one session or as many as you can. Lunch included.
Rabbi Jacqueline Koch Ellenson has been leading a contemplative journey through the Book of Psalms for over five years, searching for God’s presence, struggling with God’s absence, and reckoning with good and evil in the world through this literary treasure. This Friday lunchtime class is a perfect preparation for Shabbat. Seekers and learners of all levels are welcome, new and returning students alike. Each session stands alone.
Rabbi Jacqueline Koch Ellenson is a longtime congregant of Rodeph Sholom and Director Emerita of the Women’s Rabbinic Network.
Join us as we explore the Jewish spiritual practice of mindfulness, focusing on the different mystical attributes that exist within each of us. Learn how to cultivate traits of Loving Compassion (Chesed), Strength (Gevurah), Beauty (Tiferet), Endurance (Netzach), Humility (Hod), Foundation (Yesod), and Majesty (Malchut). When we cultivate our inner virtues, we improve our full selves. Class will be led by Bernice Todres, teacher of mindfulness for 25 years. Come for one session or to all four.
