About the Author

Jonathan Gross sees things differently than most people. He is the author of four books on a variety of topics, always offering a novel perspective.

For ten years he was the Chief Rabbi of the State of Nebraska. During his tenure he revitalized a community, did business with legendary investor Warren Buffett, and revolutionized the synagogue experience.

He created, produced, and hosted Good Shabbos Nebraska, the world’s first ever, highest rated, and longest running Synagogue Talk Show Program.

He received his BA in mathematics from Yeshiva College and his rabbinic ordination from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary of Yeshiva University.

Most recently he served as a rabbi at Baltimore’s Beth Tfiloh Congregation, one of the largest Orthodox Synagogues in North America.

He is currently a student at the University of Baltimore School of Law.

In addition to writing and speaking, Rabbi Gross acts as a consultant to synagogue and church communities interested in growing their membership and impact.
