Summer is Special at TRS!

Service Theme: Moral Virtues

During our summer Evening Shabbat services we will explore Jewish ethical teachings from the book The Jewish Moral Virtues, by Eugene Borowitz and Frances Schwartz. These teachings are based on the work of the 13th century Roman Jew Yehiel ben Yekutiel. We will learn how we can apply these virtues to contemporary life.

6:30 PM Service Time

Please note that the start time of our Shabbat Evening Service is 6:30 PM from June until the end of August. The only exception is Hot Shabbat on Friday, June 13, which begins at 6:45 PM. We will have Bo’i Shabbat Service at 6:45 PM on June 6.

Our Outside Sanctuary

Together we will spend Shabbat enjoying the summer weather and the beauty of our own TRS property! Weather permitting, the Shabbat Evening Service held on the last Friday of June, July, and August will be in the amphitheater at Bunny’s Place, located near the lower level parking lot. If the weather is above 85 degrees or it is raining at 4:00 PM, check the website calendar for a final decision on location.

Lay-Led Torah Study

During July and August, our active Torah Study group that meets Saturday mornings at 9:00 AM takes a break from their study of the Torah verse by verse. TRS lay leaders lead the spirited discussions, delving into a topic of choice, voted on by the group, for the entire summer. As of this printing, the topic was still being hashed out so come on by to find out what we’re up to! The conversations are always interesting with a variety of opinions and perspectives shared. Drop-ins are encouraged and more than welcome. A light nosh of bagels and coffee is offered.

Camp Rodef Shalom

Camp Rodef Shalom provides our campers with the ability to see Judaism in a fun, creative and enthusiastic environment, and we give our families the opportunity to form friendships that can be continued through our Nursery School and Religious School. Our 5-week Main Camp session is specifically designed to give our campers and counselors the time to form long-lasting relationships that carry on through their years as part of the Temple community. Our 1-week Bonus Week session is an optional week that can either be added to the Main session or attended a la carte.
