Rabbi Morris Kosman
Rabbi Morris Kosman was the spiritual leader of Beth Sholom Congregation from 1961 until January 2010, when he became rabbi emeritus.
Rabbi Kosman 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 was especially well-suited to guide the diverse Frederick Jewish community, whose members represent the spectrum of the Jewish experience.
Since their arrival in Frederick more than 45 years ago, Rabbi Kosman and his wife, Carol, 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 their joyous presence.
