Kehillah Groups

Building Community and Connection at Rodef Sholom

Formed by Congregants for Congregants:

What are Kehillah Groups?

Kehillah groups are intentional, lay-led communities whose members come together on a regular basis with the understanding that Jewish tradition and deep personal relationships add meaning to our lives. Kehillah groups reflect our mission: to connect our members more deeply to one another, to our community, to Jewish tradition, and to the world. 

Take a look at the different Kehillah groups below, then click the button at the bottom of the page to sign up for any and all groups that interest you.

There are endless possibilities for Kehillah groups ... we want to hear your ideas! If you're interested in starting a Kehillah group, contact Moji at

Wise Aging

Developed by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality (IJS). This initiative is designed to help participants explore the years beyond mid-life as a unique opportunity for growth and discovery. These groups will meet twice a month for eight sessions and will use discussion, teaching, support and mindfulness to meet the social, spiritual and emotional needs of all participants.

Midlife Exploration for Women
This group should resonate with women who are interested in connecting with peers to explore this period of life as a unique opportunity for growth, discovery and connection. Women age 50's - 60's - ish, recent (not brand new) empty nesters in a life phase of thinking, "Now me, now what?", and interested in exploring a sense of self and well being will enjoy this group. We will meet on Sunday mornings for eight sessions (a mix of online and outdoors in person gatherings; exact plan to be determined by the group).  A new group will begin in January 2023. 

Group Spiritual Guidance
Are you looking to grow spiritually, to connect more with the divine? Does God seem distant or non-existent to you? Religious practice can point the way to a deeper connection, but it cannot define it. Each seeker must find that connection for themselves. In our small group, we will gently explore ways to get closer to the divine, ourselves, and to each other. We will take time and space to practice pausing and building awareness through group and individual practices. The divine is in and all around us, it is up to us to nurture the connection. Five successive Sundays, 9:30 - 11:00 am on Zoom beginning October 17. Contact Lynn Roy for questions, 415.225.8387.
