Welcome to Congregation Adat Yeshurun!

Congregation Adat Yeshurun is a vibrant Jewish community in the heart of La Jolla (“The Jewel”), California where we are blessed with beautiful weather year-round. Our membership is diverse, coming from many different countries and backgrounds, blending together to create a welcoming atmosphere of caring and spiritual growth.


Not all of our members come from an Orthodox background, but we all come to Adat Yeshurun to grow spiritually and intellectually, and to increase our understanding of Judaism and what it means to be an observant Jew.  Join us for classes or services and experience it yourself!


Our Facilities:

We are an Orthodox synagogue located on the east side of La Jolla Scenic Drive North close to Highway 5 and La Jolla Village Drive and Ardath Road in La Jolla, California.


The community was started 36 years ago by Rabbi Jeffrey and Shoshie Wohlgelernter and now consists of approximately 250 families. Rabbi Daniel Reich is the Rabbi of the congregation and runs an extensive Adult Education program for every level of Jewish learning. The classes are open to members and non-members. We have a vibrant Youth Program, which include Shabbat morning groups, NCSY and Chillin with the Rabbi activities.


We are a Congregation made up of many types of Jews, and pride ourselves on the ability for everyone to feel involved and connected. The warmth and friendliness of our congregation is apparent and can be experienced every Shabbat during Kiddush.


We are proud of our building and premises, which were completed in August 2001. The sanctuary is built around our beautiful Bimah and Aron Kodesh, and displays our extensive library. We have a beautiful and newly remodeled women’s mikvah. A Keilim mikvah is also available to the community.


Both members and non-members may rent our new facility for weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, bris and birthday celebrations. Our shul sets up stunningly for parties and many local caterers have praised our kitchen.


Our Shul is an active, growing, vibrant community that would love to welcome you in its midst. We have programming for all ages. Some of our great programs include: Chanukah party; Purim Spiel and Seudah; Yom Kippur Break fast; Sukkah Barbecue; Shavuot Dinner and all night learning, children’s programs; youth groups; and shabbas morning children’s groups.
