THE LA JOLLA ERUV IS
ON FRIDAY, 22 JAN 2021
Rabbi Jeff Wohlgelernter retired as of June 30, 2020 and has transitioned to Rabbi Emeritus 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. While studying in Mishkan Hatorah he taught and ran the dorm in Neve Tziyon. In addition, Rabbi Wohlgelernter received a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Johns Hopkins University.
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.
