After a standing-room only lecture series at TRS on Jewish mysticism earlier this year, Dr. Leavitt will be speaking this time on “The Jewish World of the 1600’s,” a topic that many of us know little about. His engaging and compelling style will delight and stimulate all who attend. Don’t miss this!

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.
