As members of Temple Rodef Shalom since we moved to the area 5 years ago, we’ve had the opportunity to meet families, make long-lasting friendships, and have found a truly warm preschool for our three young children. Rodef Shalom has been an integral part of our connections here. We have engaged in family activities and strengthened our Jewish roots. Having lived in New York City and St. Louis before settling down in Northern Virginia, belonging to a synagogue has always been something that is important to us. We have continued to find the sense of community through our membership here.
