Spiritual Leader Adam Ruditsky
Adam Ruditsky is entering his final year of Rabbinical School at the Academy of Jewish Religion of California here in Los Angeles (Ordination May 2020). Currently he holds membership and certification as a professional Chaplain in both the Association of Professional Chaplains (APC) and the National Association of Jewish Chaplains (NAJC) and works for Skirball Hospice, a program of the Jewish Home. As a Spiritual Counselor he serves the community by visiting the ill and providing end of life care, as well as funeral and Bereavement support. Looking to support others as they journey through life in general, Adam has himself journeyed back to the mainstream Jewish community, which along the way included interfaith work in the Judeo-Christian world, ecumenical and Jewish community chaplaincy and also Jewish congregational service and involvement for over 20 years of experience in spiritual and religious work. Adam embraces the words of the Kotzker Rebbe, “a whole heart is a broken heart,” meaning that when life’s moments of brokenness appear people are then ready to be restored, making the heart whole and joyful once again. All that to say that a spiritual foundation can only help people both stand and endure in life. Adam looks forward to doing his part for the Jewish community today, but also into tomorrow. Adam holds two Masters degrees in Jewish Studies (Hebrew College, Boston, MA) and New Testament Studies (ATS, Nyack, NY) and in May 2020 will receive another Masters in Rabbinical Studies (AJR, CA). He lives in Encino, CA with his wife Catharine and they have 4 sons; Joel, Austin, Ben and Reuven.
