Rodef Shalom Congregation now counts more than 1,500 families as members, and we host a vibrant and inclusive religious school and one of the city's most respected early learning centers. We are proud of how each member brings his or her own story to our diverse community: those who have a multi-generational history at our congregation and those new to the city or to Rodef Shalom Congregation, and people of all ages and backgrounds who are seeking a Jewish community – a place to call home. We appreciate your continued support.
