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. During the 48 years he served as Beth Sholom's
spiritual leader, Rabbi Kosman also taught Hebrew school, prepared teens
for Bar and Bat Mitzvah and offered adult education classes in a wide
array of topics. The guiding principles of Rabbi Kosman's leadership
included the encouragement and nurturing of ongoing education in the
Jewish experience for adults, as well as the development of a positive
attitude toward Judaism and a solid educational background for children. For about five years after retiring, Rabbi Kosman continued to be a presence in the congregation, attending services and performing live-cycle events.
