Where do I begin to write about a man I admire for his warmth,intelligence and a fabulous teacher. He has been our Rabbi for our 25 years and will remain to be our forever Rabbi. Both our children studied with him and he couldn't have been better. Every time I speak with him,I learn something new. He is a man to be admired as a scholar, teacher and man.

Rabbi Gross has been my teacher for over thirty years. He is warm and kind and connects with people of all ages. His passion for history, biblical studies, philosophy and languages inspired me to pursue a career as a Jewish professional. For the past twelve years, I have been blessed to call this extraordinary man a colleague, but I still treasure opportunities to learn from him.

Rabbi Gross has been my Rabbi for over 25 years. Having personally studied with him, watching my children study with him, and other adults and children study with him, I can unequivocally attest that Rabbi Gross is the finest teacher I have ever encountered. Rabbi Gross' vast knowledge and his ability to bring the material alive and have meaning is a testament to the ultimate professional he is. You will find that you will thirst for more as you continue to learn more. You will miss your bet if you don't study with Rabbi Gross, the best and most remarkable teacher there is.

He makes learning interactive and keeps everyone engaged by relating history and life lessons to modern-day occurrences. When working with kids and teens, he teaches at their age and experience level but also encourages his students to think for themselves and reach new heights.
