Congregation Bet Shalom is in the process of evaluating rabbinical candidates to augment and complement the visits by Rabbi David Ebstein. The results of a recent congregational survey indicated the desire for a greater rabbinical presence. Dr. Rubin will be the first of two planned visits by rabbinical students over the next couple of months.
Dr. Adam Rubin has accepted an invitation to lead the congregation in services over the weekend of May 4-6th. Dr. Rubin is third-year a student at the Ziegler School of Rabbinical Studies in Los Angeles. He has also been a member of the faculty at Hebrew Union College for over ten years, and has taught courses on Jewish history, literature, and politics there and at the University of Southern California. He received his doctorate in modern Jewish history from UCLA, and has published a number of articles on Hebrew and Yiddish culture in Eastern Europe and pre-State Palestine during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
