Adat Yeshurun is an observant shul serving the needs of a diverse membership. The pillars of our community are education, mutual respect and support.
Learning and Growth
Adat Yeshurun was founded in 1987 by four local families who wanted to establish a center for in-depth Jewish education and spiritual growth. Our rabbi, Rabbi Jeff Wohlgelernter, has been here since the beginning providing thousands of hours of classes every year.
Classes run the gamut from basic Judaic topics to in-depth Talmud study. There are lectures almost every Shabbat for women and families.
Whatever your level of knowledge, Adat Yeshurun is a place where you can grow and learn. However you describe your level of Jewish observance and development, you can find a comfortable place at "Adat."
The Rabbi, community and staff provide a warm environment where you can explore your Jewish identity and find your own unique path to spiritual growth.
At Adat, you'll find myriad opportunities for growth as well as a large group of people whose common bond is Judaism and a love for other Jews.
