What's the deal with the Rabbi?

I am a little confused about the Rabbi. I feel like his name is Glickman but then I think Elaine calls him something different when she greets him at her apartment before she has a chat with him about George's engagement.
He is played by the same actor every time but his name is throwing me off. Anyone know the deal?

The Rabbi's name is Glickman, and the actor is Bruce Mahler [according to the script]

Bruce Mahler appears as Rabbi Glickman in The Postponement and appears again as the Rabbi in Serenity Now, but doesn't have a name in that episode...

In The Postponement Elaine greets the Rabbi with something like Kirshman or Kushman?

The Rabbi appeared in several episodes, right?
As I said, I know it is the same actor each time and I always thought his name to be Glickman but then this episode throws me off.

I happened to find myself watching The Postponement one day and noticed the same thing as another person, let's call him O'Brien. I thought that Elaine just butchered the Rabbi's name in that episode, kinda like she's not sure of his name, because she rather hesitates between the words Rabbi and Kirschman (or whatever she says). I THINK he is always Rabbi Glickman, though.

He does, however, definitely know of a person in his congregation who has a time-share in Myrtle Beach and after the High Holidays he could wing down there....... Elaine. Laney?!

Thanks for your help folks.

There is much I don't understand about the Jewish for example that Rabbis are allowed to change their names at will!

Interesting fact, that actor played a Rabbi along with Larry David in the show Fridays, they were Rabbis Feinberg and Kimmelman, Michael Richards was also in that show.

Aaron Brown is Glickman! Listen to his voice too! Very Happy

I think Bruce Mahler is brilliant! I'm very surprised noone else has tapped him for a sitcom. He'd be perfect to be a Dad in a sitcom.

No, Bill Maher is the guy who had the HBO show where the season was way too short.

How about UltraRabbi which is like UltraMan but starring Bruce Mahler as a crime fighting Rabbi.
