SHABBAT BEGINNINGS: Welcoming Shabbat with Spirit and Song
Friday, May 29, 6:15 PM, Lobby
Lend us your voice and your energy in this Kabbalat Shabbat service. The evening will begin with snacks and discussion of the Weekly Torah Portion, to be followed by the davening, led by Rabbi Gerson and Rodef member. Transliteration pamphlets will be available for full inclusion. Free and open to the community. Since we anticipate the participation of those who are saying kaddish, and the desire for having a minyan is strong, I ask that you inform us about your status before the date of the Service. Information: 303-399-0035.
Listening from Within: A Rodfei Tzedek Listening Campaign
Sunday, May 31, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Social Hall
Is there some community-wide issue that is of special interest to you that Rodef members can help tackle? For some, this might be concern about the lack of Denver metro services available for alcoholism/substance abuse specifically geared within a Jewish framework; someone else might be concerned about the lack of medical services available for seniors who are financially compromised; some might be concerned about the difficulties acquiring mental health services; others might be concerned about the increase in gun violence. Rodfei Tzedek, the social action arm of Rodef Shalom, invites you to participate in our congregation-wide listening campaign to share your ideas and help provide direction for our congregation action. If you have questions about this, please contact Evelyn Hutt at 303-322-2726. Click HERE for more information.
