Spiritual Leadership

Rabbi Jordan Hersh
Beth Sholom welcomed Rabbi Jordan Hersh and his wife, Cantor Shulie Hersh, to the congregation in July 2014. Rabbi Hersh, who spent a year with Beth Sholom as a Gladstein Fellow, serves as its full-time rabbi. He oversees and guides the spiritual direction of the congregation and the religious education of adults and children; takes part in community outreach and interfaith efforts; performs lifecycle ceremonies; and serves as an integral member of the Jewish and greater Frederick communities. Please stop by Beth Sholom to meet him, or join us Aug. 30 at 10 a.m. for an open house and a chance to get to know Rabbi and Cantor Hersh. Meet Rabbi Hersh.

Cantor Shulie Hersh
Cantor Shulie Hersh is Beth Sholom's first-ever cantor. She serves the congregation part time in a variety of musical and educational capacities. Her beautiful voice enhances and brings a spiritual warmth to our Shabbat and holiday services. Meet Cantor Hersh.

Rabbi Morris Kosman z"l, emeritus
Rabbi Kosman was Beth Sholom's spiritual leader from 1961 until January 2010, when he became rabbi emeritus. Rabbi Kosman passed away Oct. 22, 2016. Learn more about Rabbi Kosman.

Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is Beth Sholom's governing body. The board meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Community Center. Congregants are welcome to attend board meetings and are invited to offer input regarding policies, events and other topics of interest to congregants. Meet Beth Sholom's Board of Trustees.


Beth Sholom's office is staffed by an executive director and an administrative assistant. They are responsible for the day-to-day operations of the congregation and are available during office hours to discuss topics that are of interest or concern. Contact Beth Sholom's office staff and leaders.
