He has been with Beth El - The Heights Synagogue since its founding. "I'd often felt that if I were to serve as rabbi of a synagogue, I'd want it to be friendly, warm, participatory, and committed to Jewish learning, observance, and deeds of kindness. At Beth El - Heights I found all those qualities." Rabbi Adler teaches and writes extensively on the applicability of Jewish values to contemporary issues.
