Rodeph Shalom blends tradition and innovation in a Reform Jewish setting. The congregation, incorporated in 1795, continues to be located in its historic Philadelphia metropolitan location in Center City. A warm spirit, the sharing of ideas, life cycle events, new and sustained friendships, new and deepening interests, all prevail at Rodeph Shalom. The congregation expands one's sphere from the neighborhood to the larger community, and asserts kinship with K'lal Yisrael, the whole family of Israel. Their openness toward interfaith families creates an atmosphere where children, their parents and grandparents are comfortable in our sanctuary, classrooms and events.
