My Chanukah Blast at Rodef Sholom

Rose Hornstein

Chocolate wrapped in gold foil, family, gift exchanges, cashmere scarves, and the yellow glow of candles, is what comes to mind when I think of Chanukah. I grew up attending Rodef Sholom as a child, lit the candles at Hillel in college,...Read more...

There are few things in life that are more delectable than homegrown tomatoes, layered with freshly picked basil, drizzled in sweet balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and a dash of kosher salt (of course). Rodef Sholom congregant Nancy Mann  knows this type of satisfaction quite...Read more...

As I sat on the beach at Limantour last week, I thought, as I always do, about the first time I saw that beach more than 45 years ago when I moved here. The wide sweep of the beach, my favorite palette of colors, and the silence, all struck me then as they do now. It seems like nothing has changed. But we know that’s not true.

They are not yet a nation, and not in their Promised Land either. Moses & Aaron are commanded to take a census, to count the men able to fight.

Covenantal: CRS Board President David Rudnick on Membership

06/03/2021 11:17:42 AM


I’ve never liked the word “membership" to describe why we financially support the synagogue. To me, membership connotes exclusivity, and a menu of services and benefits that your “dues” buy you. Being part of Congregation Rodef Sholom does not feel this way to me — it’s simply not consistent with our values and mission. Allow me to explain clearly what membership means in my eyes.
