building community and connection at rodef sholom
Based on the nationally recognized program developed by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality (IJS), Wise Aging: Living with Joy, Resilience and Spirit, these groups are designed to help participants explore the years beyond mid-life as a unique opportunity for growth and discovery. Our group facilitators are invested in meeting the social, spiritual and emotional needs of our Rodef Sholom congregants with mindful discussion and a supportive teaching style.

Biking and Bagels
Next ride: Saturday, August 24, 2019. Meet promptly at 9:00 am in front of the Starbucks at Larkspur Country Mart.
Road cyclists, saddle up and meet for a monthly weekend ride that begins and ends at The Larkspur Country Mart. We will ride Paradise Loop, a classic, 20 mile loop that heads out through Corte Madera and Tiburon, and loops back thru Mill Valley & Larkspur. The ride is suitable for regular road riders of all adult ages (from post-college to retirement!). No one will be left behind, but to best facilitate coordination and community building, you should be capable of riding 10 to 12 mph over rolling terrain. We'll end with an appropriate Jewish nosh and conversation at Wise Sons Bagelry. This group is open to anyone in the community that is looking to "ride Jewishly", so feel free to invite your friends from other shuls or your friends who never go to shul! Leaders: Greg Neichin and Mark Comin.
