History and Mission
Congregation Rodef Sholom, founded in 1956, is a Reform Jewish Congregation located on the Lonee C. Hoytt Jewish Campus in San Rafael, California, and is affiliated with the Union of Reform Judaism. Our campus partners include the Osher Marin Jewish Community Center and Brandeis Hillel Day School. Click here for a list of our Past Presidents.
Rodef Sholom, which literally means "pursuers of peace", calls on us to actively pursue peace and wholeness.
We are welcoming and inclusive, and support the development of friendships and bonds without regard to our members' national origin, race, color, gender, marital status, sexual orientation or physical/mental abilities; and we accept and encourage a wide range of ideas and expressions of Judaism.
We are committed to healing the world (tikkun olam), social justice (mitzvot), involvement and advocacy, and recognizing and responding to unmet social needs within and beyond the Jewish community, both locally and globally.
