He is a member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the National Association of Temple Administrators, and the Pacific Association of Temple Administrators.

He was granted an M.Litt. in Medieval History from the University of St. Andrews, a B.A. from C.S.U.L.B, and has additionally studied at the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, the Conservative Yeshiva, and Uppsala Universitet. Rabbi Rosner served as a Chaplain Candidate and 2Lt. in the United States Air Force Reserves from 2010 to 2015.

What else does he like to do? He is dedicated to the pleasures of picnicking, pickling, and cooking. He loves hammocks and blend of people who make up the rich tapestry of Southern California life.

He considers himself a "proud millennial" and loves not needing to wear a tie too often. Notice only one photo here has him wearing a tie?

 



 

Cantor Ken Rothstein

Cantor Rothstein has been an indispensable part of our community since 1988. There's a special, serene feeling here, especially on Shabbat, owing to Cantor Ken- as our members know him. He enjoys leading services on our historic building whether on a school day, Friday night, Shabbat morning or for special holiday programming throughout the year.
