Rockland — Rabbi Lily Solochek, spiritual leader of Adas Yoshuron Synagogue in Rockland, on June 7 graduated from the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. A small, private ordination ceremony was held for the graduates at the college’s suburban Philadelphia campus.

Solochek was installed as Adas Yoshuron’s spiritual leader in a Nov. 10 ceremony. They are the third rabbi in the 108-year-old congregation’s recent history.

Prior to joining Adas Yoshuron, they were a rabbinic fellow at the Center for Small Town Jewish Life in 2018-19 working with Rabbi Lisa Vinikoor in Bath and teaching across Maine’s Jewish communities. Starting rabbinical school, they served as director of Jewish Student Life at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Hillel and education director at Beth Israel Center in Madison, Wis.
