We will celebrate and honor the 50th anniversary of Rabbi Berkowits’ ordination as well as the 50th anniversary of his arrival at Temple Rodef Shalom. For half a century our community has been blessed by the leadership, wisdom and kindness of Rabbi Berkowits. He has helped us to grow into the congregation we are today. He has made significant contributions to the wider Northern Virginia community bringing Jewish values and the presence of our Temple into many important circles. During this Friday night service we will celebrate this milestone and acknowledge the many gifts Rabbi Berkowits has shared with us, his Temple family. Please come and add your appreciation to this special evening.
