|RABBI MORRIS KOSMAN
Rabbi Morris Kosman has been the spiritual leader of Beth Sholom Congregation since 1961.
He completed his training at the Rabbinical College of Telshe, an Orthodox institution transplanted from Lithuania to the United States. In addition, Rabbi Kosman is a graduate of the Baltimore Hebrew University and is a recipient of a Distinguished Scholar’s Certificate from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. These institutions cover a wide spectrum of Judaism. With that background, Rabbi Kosman is especially well-suited to guide the Frederick Jewish community, whose members represent the spectrum of the Jewish experience.
Since their arrival in Frederick more than 40 years ago, Rabbi Kosman and his wife, Carol, have served Beth Sholom as educators, along with their other duties. Their seven children were raised here, and the entire Kosman family has enriched Beth Sholom by its joyous presence.
The guiding principles of Rabbi Kosman’s leadership are 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.
