- Our Congregation is a strong, friendly, and growing community. Our distinctive membership comes from a wide radius around the lower Connecticut River valley, from Branford to Old Lyme, West Hartford to Old Saybrook. Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek is proudly affiliated with the reform movement, actively involved in and committed to this movement's deep-rooted search for justice, righteousness, and peace. In addition, we honor traditions of Conservative Judaism in our services. Our special combination of traditions embraces members from a wide variety of backgrounds. We welcome interfaith families, singles, and nontraditional families.
