- Rodef Shalom is a Reform Jewish congregation dedicated to melding the traditions of our faith with contemporary life. This has been our aim for more than 150 years. Through our rabbinic staff, organizations, community events, and religious services, we strive to enlighten and edify, while hewing to the ideals of progressive Jewish thought. We are diverse. Many Rodef Shalom families can trace their involvement back through the generations, while others are relative newcomers. Many of our members were raised as Jews in Jewish households. Others have come to us through other faiths and traditions. All who espouse liberal Judaism and the values it represents are welcome within the Rodef Shalom community.
