Life and Legacy

Rodfei Sholom, with Orthodox roots growing since 1912, is a caring family, united in its love of Judaism and Israel, committed to providing vibrant Jewish life in San Antonio.  We strive to enrich connection to Torah through worship and education.   Children connect to Torah through educational, social and religious activities.  Families gather to celebrate important life cycle events, and all the Jewish people of South Texas, spanning many cultures and generations, come together as one big family.


Led by Rabbi Aryeh Scheinberg for close to fifty years, our membership of over 300 families come from Reform, Conservative, Orthodox and secular backgrounds. Congregants come to us from Israel, Mexico, South Africa, South America and Europe.  Our religious and cultural diversity creates a unique and welcoming home for all to feel connected and embraced by the warm spirit of traditional Judaism.

Rabbi Scheinberg has provided continuity and consistency of religious leadership in the greater San Antonio Community and is known throughout the world as a staunch champion of Israel.  He brings that spirit to the Rodfei family and the San Antonio Community including many non-Jewish friends and supporters.  Together with Rebbetzin Judy Scheinberg and Rabbi Avraham and Rebbetzin Michal Scheinberg and their everlasting commitment to Jewish life in San Antonio, Rabbi’s teachings, warmth and complete generosity of spirit will live on at Rodfei forever.  In our daily lives, Rabbi Scheinberg’s inspirational leadership serve as a genuine role model for kindness, life-long learning and deepening understanding of Torah and commitment to Israel. 


On any Shabbat morning of the year, the Rodfei Sholom sanctuary is filled with men, women and children who have come together to daven and enjoy the companionship of community.  Our Legacy Donors, individuals like you will guarantee there will always be a sacred space to bring together and inspire future generations of San Antonio Jews.   Your legacy gift will ensure that Rodfei Sholom can continue to provide and inspire future generations of San Antonio, promote love for Torah and Israel, and ensure that open are the gates righteousness that I may enter and Praise the L-rd.
