Erev Shabbat Service: Fridays at 6:00 PM

Each Friday evening the Rodeph Sholom community joins together to welcome Shabbat in a joyful service of prayer, music, and moments of quiet contemplation. Our Erev Shabbat service is a perfect way to end the week and begin recharging for the week ahead. Tune in to our live stream.

Shabbat Greeters

The commandment to be kind to the stranger appears more times in the Torah than any other commandment. We have the obligation to extend kindness and to be welcoming. At every Erev
Shabbat service at Rodeph Sholom, Shabbat Greeters welcome strangers and congregants, friends and families, into our lobby and Sanctuary. Serving as the face of our congregation, Shabbat Greeters help foster connection, offering greetings and answering questions. Join us in this mitzvah! You will experience the joy of extending Shabbat hospitality for our very special community. Sponsored by Caring Community. Register to be a Shabbat Greeter.

B’nai Mitzvah @ CRS
