Rodef Rides is a free service for adult congregants that need a ride to TRS for Shabbat Servicers, or to participate in our wide array of rich stimulating programming. Rides can also be requested to attend medical / therapy appointments.
A ride can be coordinated by calling Rodef Rides at 703-942-9927 or emailing RodefRides@TempleRodefShalom.org.
We will make every attempt to accommodate your request for a ride, but we ask that all rides be requested 5 days in advance of the event or appointment.
Before requesting your first ride, a Client application must be completed. Click here to download the Rider Application and questionnaire. Please email your application to RodefRides@templerodefshalom.org now to become registered with Rodef Rides.
TRS is now partnering with NV Rides (www.NVRides.org) to bring a volunteer driving program to our TRS community. We want to help our fellow congregants to fully participate in congregational life.
Whether you are coming for High Holidays, Shabbat or Mahjong, we need your help.
Our goal is to build a database of potential drivers, so when an adult congregant requests a ride to come to a program or needs to attend a medical or therapy appointment, we can coordinate a driver with a rider request. As a driver, you can choose to say yes you are available and willing to share and drive a congregant to the TRS event or you can choose to decline. The goal is to make our community more welcoming and inclusive, especially for those who struggle to get to the temple.
Many older adults are looking for opportunities to engage in the world around them but find themselves alone and isolated in their homes. Please assist us by helping them attend services or by giving them an opportunity to participate in our wide array of rich and stimulating programming.
We hope that you will consider joining us in this mission. To become a driver, Click here to download the Volunteer Driver Application. Please email your application to RodefRides@templerodefshalom.org.
