Avram Chaim Bogopulsky
Rabbi Avram Bogopulsky was born and raised in the Boro Park section of Brooklyn, New York. He attended the Etz Chaim Yeshiva, and was actually the last graduating class. From there his family moved to Flatbush where he attended high school at M.T.A. After high school, Rabbi Bogopulsky went to study abroad at Yeshiva Neveh Zion in Telshe- Stone, Israel. After almost two years, the Rabbi along with six others came to Yeshiva Shaarei Torah in Monsey, N.Y. Under the influence and guidance of his Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Berel Wein and the tutelage of his personal Rebbi, Rabbi Laibel Reznick, Rabbi Bogopulsky pursued a career in the Rabbinate. It was the inspirational words and messages of Rabbi Wein that instilled within Rabbi Bogopulsky a desire to be of service to Klal Yisrael.
In July of 1996, Rabbi Bogopulsky assumed the mantle of leadership at Beth Jacob Congregation San Diego where he remains until today. He is a member of the local Vaad HaRabbonim, teaches classes at the local orthodox high schools, and also manages the College Area Eruv Corporation.
Rabbi Pinny Roth is a Brooklyn native with an "out-of-town" spirit. He has spent the past decade involved in numerous Torah education and outreach projects. Before joining Beth Jacob Congregation, he was a kollel member and community program coordinator at Yeshiva Bais Mordechai of Teaneck. Rabbi Roth received his semicha from HaGaon HaRav Moshe Heinemann shlita and has studied at Yeshivat Netiv Aryeh, Yeshiva Gedolah of Washington, and Yeshiva Gedolah of the Five Towns. He also holds a masters degree from Yeshiva University's school of social work. Rabbi Roth is joined by his wife Miriam and their children Chezky and Yitzy.
