Our Clergy


Rabbi Hector Epelbaum

Rabbi Hector Epelbaum joined Temple Beth Israel as our spiritual leader on July 23, 2014. Born and raised in Buenos Aires, he was deeply involved in the Masorti/Conservative Youth Movement. After earning a Masters Degree in Psychology, he went on to conduct his rabbinical studies at Seminario Latinoamericano, and obtained his ordination in Israel at Bet Hamidrash Lelimudei Lahadut, HaRav Shmuel Avidor Hachoen. Rabbi Epelbaum served in Conservative pulpits for over 33 years in Argentina, Israel and the United States. These experiences have helped crystallize his belief that congregations are “organizations of people dealing with religion” rather than “religious organizations dealing with people”. The Rabbi is married to wife, Berta, and they have three adult children.
