We invite you to join us and become a member of Congregation Rodef Shalom. Together, we will enable you to meet other Jews with whom you can pray, learn, celebrate, and help build community.
We offer a dues structure for both for singles and families. We are eager to include members under age 30, and offer reduced dues for that age group. We never want financial considerations to exclude any member and individual arrangements can be discussed with our Executive Director, Sandy Greene.
Our Congregation is very supportive of youth education and programming. There are, beyond membership dues, tuition fees for participation in Shabbat School, the Kehilat Rodef Religious School, and the Pre-school. Other individual youth events may also have fees. These revenues help to compliment the budgetary expenditures of the Congregation.
Rodef Shalom is proud that almost 20% of our membership participates in the "L'Chaim" program which provides the opportunity to contribute an extra measure to the synagogue's operating funds. This, in large part, helps us to underwrite reduced dues for those who need it and support our youth programming. There are three levels of "L'Chaim" participation - patron, guardian, and benefactor, available for singles and families. Each of these levels has certain benefits, including two free tickets to our Annual Dinner. And, for some levels, tuition for 2 children and reserved seating at High Holy days services are included.
Please use our membership form to begin the process of becoming an important part of our Rodef Shalom family. We are eager to welcome you to Congregation Rodef Shalom.
"Our family feels so "at home" at Rodef Shalom. That is part of the reason we belong to the Rodef Shalom community. From being active on boards, committees, Minyan on the Move, helping with honeybags, or hamantaschen projects, we are there as much as possible. Our three kids are growing up at Rodef Shalom and we're excited for continued happy life cycle events. And, during the challenging life cycle events, our Rodef Shalom community has been there for us as well."
