Covid-19 Resources



In-Person Shabbat Worship Services

Under the thoughtful guidance of our COVID Advisory Group, we are pleased to share that we continue to welcome more people back to Temple Rodef Shalom.

  • Up to 150 people (20% capacity) may join our clergy in the sanctuary for Shabbat worship on Friday evenings. Registration to attend an upcoming Shabbat service is no longer required. However, please be sure to complete our Health Screening Form prior to your arrival. Our services will also continue to be live-streamed each week for those who wish to join us online.
  • Committee chairs have been invited to schedule meetings, programs and events at the temple. Social distancing will be maintained – we are fortunate to have many large spaces, both indoors and out, where groups can safely and comfortably gather.
  • Masks continue to be required at all times within the Temple. In accordance with CDC guidelines, those who are fully vaccinated may choose to remove their masks outdoors.

Planned gifts ensure the continuity and strength of our community and congregation. No minimum amount is required.

A legacy gift is your way to leave financial resources to support our vitally important work for the next generation. It ensures that you will be remembered for goodness and your work and your values will continue when you are no longer here.

No matter what your income or estate value, your gift is important. All bequests and other planned gifts to Temple Rodef Shalom not otherwise designated will be deposited in the unrestricted general endowment to help ensure the financial security of our sacred community.
