Welcome To Rodef Shalom!

We are a vibrant and family-friendly Conservative, egalitarian synagogue located in the heart of the Jewish community in Denver. We are proud to be one of the oldest Conservative congregations in Denver. 

Our name Rodef Shalom  means "pursuit of peace", which speaks to our dream of a community where all Jews come together as a single entity. In that spirit, we welcome all guests would wish to join us. 

We're proud to represent a cross-section of the Jewish population, from our founding senior members and older recent residents to families with children of all ages, single parents and their families, singles and couples with diverse experiences and backgrounds, and many young people seeking connection to the Jewish community.

We feature a dynamic egalitarian Conservative philosophy that serves as the foundation for our services as a house of prayer, a house of learning and a community. We are committed to expressing our Jewish identities through spiritual, educational, and social moments of communal connection and personal growth.

Our New Rabbi!

Rabbi Rachel KobrinWe are excited to announce that we have a new rabbi! 

Rabbi Rachel Kobrin has agreed to join Congregation Rodef Shalom as our new spiritual leader beginning this July. Please join us for Shabbat services on July 7th to welcome her!

Tribute Event Honoring The Gersons

Sunday, May 6, 5:00 p.m., Rodef Shalom

What a wonderful time we had honoring Rabbi Bernard and Sue Parker Gerson for their quarter-century of service to Rodef Shalom, and on Rabbi Gerson's retirement. The Tribute Dinner by Mark Millenson Caterers and a special performance by Sababa was spectacular! 

Enjoy this lovely photo show created by Fran and Harvey Cohen in honor of the Gersons:
