Temple Rodef Shalom Featured in the Washington Post

Washington Post article 2

Temple Rodef Shalom was featured in a Washington Post article on Saturday, June 4, 2016 for the recent Refugee Welcome Dinner we hosted. The article, titled Singing ‘salaam,’ synagogue hosts a welcome dinner for Syrian refugees, written by Julie Zauzmer, quoted Rabbi Jeffrey Saxe and TRS Member, Delegate Marcus Simon (53rd District).

Participants gathered to welcome a number of Syrian families who have recently settled to the Washington and Baltimore areas and heard the stories of those who had fled their homeland.

Washington Post article 1The Welcome Dinner was planned in cooperation with McLean Islamic Center, the Syrian American Council, the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and the Greater Washington Muslim Jewish Forum.

The second photo, taken by Amanda Voisard for The Washington Post, features the words above our Sanctuary doors from Exodus 25:8, “And let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them.”
