Rabbi Brian Besser

Shalom! If you are not a member of Congregation Beth Shalom or have not yet joined us, thank you for your interest in our community.

Like Beth Shalom itself, my background is multifaceted. I grew up in a Conservative household in suburban New Jersey. My early career was in mathematics; after pursuing an advanced degree at U. C. Berkeley, I remained in California to work for the software giant Oracle in education and later as a technical writer. In San Francisco, I became active as a lay service leader of the Reform Congregation Shaar Zahav.
