Where You Fit In

If you are a member of Pittsburgh’s Jewish community and find that a liberal interpretation of our faith resonates with you, Rodef Shalom can be your home. We are proud that our congregational family includes men and women irrespective of age, marital or family status, faith tradition of origin, or financial means. We welcome the LGBT community, those with special needs, young professionals, and seniors. Interfaith families have a place with us as well. Ours is a sacred community predicated on the belief that meaning can be found through this—a body of individuals dedicated to a liberal Jewish life.

"My House shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples." Isaiah 56:7

Our congregation is built upon a foundation of warm welcomes and inclusivity. Our entire array of religious, educational, social and community service programming—as well as every individual member of Rodef Shalom—is integral to our achieving our prophetic goal: The daily improvement of our world by making all feel valued and making all our encounters with one another significant. This is the nature of Rodef Shalom.

It does not matter if you or your family trace your association with Pittsburgh's most dynamic congregational community over many generations, just recently heard of our congregation's dynamism and want to learn more, or you are new to Pittsburgh or congregational life and seek an historic yet progressive Reform Jewish congregation. What matters, the only thing that matters, is that you find yourself drawn to Rodef Shalom. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with our website, contact us to schedule a visit, or stop by when you are in the neighborhood.

We would love to help you better understand where you fit in!  We'll look forward to seeing you soon!
