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.
