Rabbi Wohlberg is world-renown for his inspiring sermons, which are read by thousands on the Internet. He was the moving force behind the creation of Beth Tfiloh's High School in 1986, which was the first coed Jewish high school in Baltimore, with over 1,000 alumni today. Rabbi Wohlberg is a passionate advocate for Israel and is credited with selling more Israel Bonds than any other rabbi in Maryland, and perhaps the entire U.S. He is an upbeat, user-friendly rabbi, who has brought traditional Judaism to "the masses". No rabbi in Baltimore does it better!
