August 2016, from our president

Join Us!

I invite you to become a member of our wonderful community of women here at Congregation Rodef Sholom. Together we will study, develop meaningful friendships, socialize at festive events and even travel. Our goal is to embody the promotion of loving kindness and tzedakah.  Being a part of our Sisterhood will strengthen your connection to Rodef Sholom.  Join us planning and /or participating in events such as our Women’s Seder, Sisterhod Shabbat Service, Jewelry Sale or annual Retreat to gorgeous Glen Ellen in Sonoma. You will have many opportunities to schmooze at our pool party and other membership events.

In our efforts to make a difference last year we raised funds to support our children at Rodef Sholom by contributing to Camperships and the Religious School. We supported children in our larger community with contributions to Venetia Valley School and Enriching Lives Through Music. We raised almost $9000 for the Marin-San Francisco Food Bank and also donated to Mazon, Marin Organizing Committee and Homeward Bound. We supported organizations working to end gun violence, distracted driving and anti-semitism on college campuses.

Women of Rodef Sholom is a member of the Women of Reform Judaism, an international organization of Reform Sisterhoods providing opportunities for personal growth by developing leadership skills, promoting strong relationships, the pursuit  of social justice, study and prayer.

We welcome you joining our vibrant community and supporting Congregation Rodef Sholom, Reform Judaism and each other. If you have already joined Women of Rodef Sholom Sisterhood, we thank you for your membership. If you have any questions about Sisterhood please contact me or Diane Amarillas, membership co-chair, using the ‘Join Us’ link below. And you can always email us at or reply to this newsletter.
