Congregation Adat Yeshurun
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 30 years ago with one family and now consists of approximately 300 families. Rabbi Jeffrey Wohlgelernter 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. A list of classes is enclosed. 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 new building and premises, which were completed in August 2001. The sanctuary is built around our beautiful Bimah and Aron Kadesh, and displays our extensive library. We have a beautiful women’s mikvah. A vessel 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.
