If you have been here 25 years or more, please come to receive a special blessing on Shabbat.  The full adult choir will also be singing!

Here’s a reflection from Shirley Berman, a member since 1959:

When our first child was born 54 years ago, we joined Rodef Sholom, then located on Mission Street in San Rafael. Happily, the days of the Building Fund for our own sanctuary and campus are only a distant memory for me (although we could use some more space—a sign of success!).

To me, the mature status of our congregation started with Rabbi Barenbaum, when member involvement increased, especially with our teens. Since then, we have been blessed with clergy and staff almost too good to be true. I often wonder how such young professionals can be so wise.

Rodef Sholom has programs that serve the varied needs of our community. We have a dynamic religious school and a liberal spectrum of religious practices. Our three children have benefitted from birth to marriage. Now our grandchildren are sharing these treasures.

Rodef Sholom is a welcoming and comforting spiritual base for all of us.

Please join us for a Shabbat dinner in the JCC Lounge. Enjoy good food, a glass of wine and visit with friends before our special Shabbat services at 8 pm, honoring congregants who have been members for 25 or more years. The cost is $20 per person and reservations are needed by Monday, February 13. To RSVP, please call Pete at 479.3441 or
