Rabbi Sam Weiss
Rabbi Weiss joined Congregation Beth El in 2022.
A native of Andover, MA, he holds a B.A. in Rhetoric from the University of California, Berkeley and was ordained as a graduate of the New York Campus of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.
As a student rabbi, he received numerous academic awards, was a Tisch Fellow, and was selected to participate in the seminarian cohort of the Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics. He has preached and prayed across denominational divides, deepening his love the Jewish people in all its difference and diversity, and served as a pastoral caregiver at a variety of interfaith settings.
Rabbi Weiss loves to cook, play guitar, and meet new people. Most of all, he loves Erin, to whom he is married, and their son, Milo.
