Special Accommodations at Bar/Bat Mitzvahs
Did you know that RS accommodates non-English speakers, non-Jewish family members, children with disabilities, etc.?  Come listen to a panel of parents speak about their special situation and how well it was handled by the clergy and staff at RS.

Sunday, March 5, 2017 - 10:15am

We will explore the power of meaning in our lives: how Judaism helps us search for our purpose in life and adds fulfillment and joy as we grow older.

RS comes together to design and make a unique and dynamic work of art with congregant and artist, Fred Kogan

Sunday, March 12, 2017 - 9:30am

Everyone will start out in the sanctuary at 9:30 to listen to the clergy read the Megillah (scroll of Esther) and explain the story within.  Please feel free to bring little brothers and sisters to this service. It is the custom to be very loud and silly, and it always features a creative reenactment of the Purim story starring the clergy (and I usually get to participate too!).  When we hear Haman’s name, we boo and shake our groggers. Some people prefer traditional groggers, and others enjoy shaking the boxes of pasta that we ask our participants to bring and donate.  After Purim, we always end up with an enormous amount of pasta to bring to a local food bank!  
After the service, everyone heads downstairs for our fantastic annual Purim carnival.

Help us connect with every member household
Join the ConnectRS team and help us do a mitzvah!  We're looking for congregants to give us an hour or two of time (or as long as you can), to bring your cell phone and make phone calls to current RS members. We call every member household to wish them a Happy Passover on behalf of RS and check in. No soliciting - no big commitment - just friends, fun and food (lunch will be provided).  Many ConnectRS have come back each year to help us make calls because it feels good to connect with other members and do this important outreach work on behalf of RS.
Co-chaired by Linda Karp Rudow & Cheryl Dougherty. With special thanks to Mary Ellen Schneider for all her help.
