2021 Service Schedule

New Year, New Service Schedule!

Join our clergy for a new monthly service schedule that we hope will meet your diverse needs for prayerful experiences at Temple Rodef Shalom. Please see below for an outline of what we will be offering each Friday evening starting in January. Until otherwise noted, all of these options will be presented virtually on our streaming site, www.templerodefshalom.org.live. We hope to “see” you there!

Your Clergy Team

First Friday: 6:30 PM
In January, we’ll offer just our family-friendly congregational service at 6:30 PM. Then, beginning in February, on the first Friday of each month, we will offer TWO options for services, both at 6:30 PM:

  • The first is our family service led by our clergy and Family Band. This service will be geared towards families with children in elementary school and will have a story and interactive music.
  • As an alternative, be sure to check out our Zoom Bo’i Shabbat service led by Rabbi Jeff Saxe or Cantor Rachel Rhodes. This service will be on Zoom only.

Second Friday: 5:00 PM
Interactive Zoom Healing Service led by a member of our clergy and Anita Thornton on Zoom only. 

Second Friday: 6:30 PM
On the second Friday of the month, we will host a variety of guest speakers, both congregants and non, to give divrei Torah. Join us to hear words of wisdom from the diverse membership of our wider community!

Third Friday: 6:30 PM
On the third Friday of the month, the cantors will present a special musical experience. This could be a choral virtual video, new instrumentation for our service, or both cantors leading together. Tune in to be inspired and swept away by the beautiful music!

Fourth Friday: 6:30 PM
The fourth Friday of the month will feature a new Zoom “pre-neg.” From 6 to 6:30 PM, you will have a chance to sign into an intimate Zoom room where you can chat with your friends and engage with the clergy. We hope that by beginning your Shabbat experience with greeting each other, we will all feel more connected. Then, if you choose, you can watch the Friday service on your own or online with other attendees of the oneg.
