A Synagogue Like Ours Shouldn’t Be So Unusual.
But It Is.
It doesn’t happen at every synagogue. But Adath Jeshurun is more than a synagogue;
and it’s been that way for many generations.
Welcome from the Rabbi
If you feed them, they will come!
As a longtime foodie, I am fascinated by cookbooks, menus, and the food aisles at Trader Joe's, H Mart, Whole Foods, and elsewhere on the Old York Road Corridor. Often I'll check my smartphone to find uses of fruits and vegetables, exotic or not. We welcome you to our new website with a host of offerings…menu choices to enhance your experience of Congregation Adath Jeshurun. We urge you to click on pages that interest you: our schools, our programs, and religious services. Get to know us by accessing weekly rabbinic musings, our Cantor's postings, and the wide host of activities that make AJ vibrant and dynamic.

|This year, AJ’s annual fundraiser will celebrate our own Hazzan Howard K. Glantz for his 15 years of outstanding service to our congregation and to the community! On Saturday morning, May 18, we’ll have a special Shabbat service and extended Kiddush luncheon. Then, on Sunday evening, May 19, we’ll welcome the Clergy Boys. If you love Jersey Boys, you’ll loooove the Clergy Boys! The four cantors will sing the stories of their lives, set to the tunes of all your favorite oldies. To get a taste of the show, click here.|
In addition to our dedicated clergy and staff, AJ continues to thrive through the tremendous efforts of our many volunteers. Here at AJ, there is a place for everyone to become involved. No matter your skill, no matter how much/little time you have to help, we’ve got opportunities for you. To find out how you can help, contact the synagogue office at 215.635.6611.
"AJ is truly a community... better yet a family. And, I get to see family every day. I am grateful to call this my home. And I am grateful to see and share my family every day."
