Torah Study

The cornerstone of our learning is our Saturday morning Torah Study. We discuss the weekly Torah portion and have a lively and spirited conversation as we relate this ancient text to our daily lives.
No special training or prerequisite courses are necessary for you to attend. Neither is there an entrance requirement for the understanding of Torah. When we come to it in study, there are no barriers to keep us distant from our heritage.

Tot Shabbat

Tot Shabbat is a time for babies, tots and preschoolers and their families to gather for singing, dancing and storytelling. The "service" is led by our rabbis and cantor and is followed by an animal cracker and challah oneg.  Tot Shabbat is on Saturday mornings from 9:30am- 10:30am.

Shabbat Evening Services

The vision of Congregation Rodeph Shalom is to offer the kind of Friday evening Shabbat worship service which will help create profound connections among all of our congregants. On Friday evenings we hope all of our congregation will come together to welcome Shabbat and to pray together, to support each other in times of need and in times of joy, to socialize together and to build a strong sense of community.

Meditation Study and Practice

For the first time, an hour long Jewish Meditation/Mindfulness session will be offered as part of our YK observance. Lead by RS congregants,  Mel Seligsohn, Elise Kraemer and Ben-Zion Friedman, the session will explore how this practice relates to the meaning of this sacred day, its proven health benefits, and include a 20 minute guided meditation.

Organ Music Meditation

Deep into our fasts and with our thoughts facing deep inside our souls, we will offer the space for silent contemplation in our sanctuary, accompanied by our organist, Tom Whittemore. In preparation for Yizkor and Neilah (our Concluding Service), we will be inspired by the peace and serenity our beautiful organ can provide.
