Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice
True to our name, Rodeph Sholom (pursuer of wholeness and peace), we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to living out our core values of kehilah (community), achrayut (responsibility), and limmud (love of learning). We actively cultivate a sense of belonging for, and deep connection among, all people in our community. In the tradition of Reform Judaism, we teach students to think critically and to dialogue intentionally about the complex world in which they live. Together, students pursue their collective responsibility to build a world of tzedek (justice).
Rodeph Sholom School fosters a lifelong love of, and responsibility toward, the State of Israel and its people (ahavat Yisrael). We guide students to develop their own connection with the land, people, and State of Israel as a key component of their personal Jewish identity.
