Rabbi Jeff Wohlgelernter is the Rabbi of Congregation Adat Yeshurun in La Jolla, California.
He studied from 1976-1985 at yeshivas in Israel and in Baltimore, and received his rabbinical ordination from both Ner Israel Rabbinical College and Yeshivat Mishkan Hatorah.

After spending a year and half in Sydney Australia, Rabbi Jeff and his wife and their three children arrived in La Jolla to begin Congregation Adat Yeshurun in January 1987. The shul started with one family and now has over 300 families. Adat Yeshurun’s new building was constructed in 2001 and has a beautiful Mikvah on the premises.
