- The La Jolla Eruv
The La Jolla Eruv is a community eruv constructed and maintained by Congregation Adat Yeshurun under the Halachic guidance of Rabbi A. Teichman and our Rav, Jeffrey Wohlgelernter. It is checked each week and a notification goes out each Thursday as to its status. Although it is checked officially, every one of us drives by the boundaries of the eruv almost daily. If you ever notice anything out of the ordinary please call the Rabbi or the Shul office.
- Pirkey Avos – Ethics of the Fathers
We know that Jewish law comes from Sinai, but where do Jewish Ethics come from? Our Rabbis teach us that they too come from Sinai. Direct from Moshe from Hashem. These teachings have been transmitted in the form of six chapters of Mishna edited by Rabbi Judah the Prince.
This series of classes deals with the ethics that form the basis of Jewish life and values. Each class is a stand-alone lecture, not connected to previous classes

Ramchal, or Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzatto, wrote the work Mesilas Yesharim, or path of the Just, during the 18th Century. The purpose of this work is to focus on perfection of character. We often lead busy lives, so totally bogged down with the details of life that we get so little time and opportunity to consider who we are and where we are going. These lectures afford us an opportunity to explore the words of Luzatto and apply them to our lives!
- Wednesday Women’s Class
We began with studying the laws of lashon Hara. Week by week we uncovered the truths of guarding your tongue.
In April we made a switch and began to study Ethics of the Fathers, with an eye towards uncovering basic Jewish thought and philosophy.
