Creating connections with others feels more important than ever. A new initiative is underway for RS members to discover common interests and create new connections and friendships.

Small group gatherings bring members together in intimate get-togethers of up to 12 members who share interests and have not yet discovered their connections. These groups use relational, thought-provoking questions to anchor discussions and promote dialogue which strengthens relationships as people get to know each other and engage.

Groups meet for a finite duration of time, about once every 4-6 weeks, with a commitment for regular participation. The intent is to create relationships that bind people together, even after the group is completed.

The impact of Rodeph Shalom Connection Groups, creating profound connections, is well-established. Small groups are a way to establish deep connections in new ways, leveraging topical interests, with just a few other people. Next month, we will begin an effort to engage close-up in our Small Groups initiative.
