Rabbi Avram Bogopulsky was born and raised in the Boro Park section of Brooklyn, New York. After high school, Rabbi Bogopulsky went to study abroad at Yeshiva Neveh Zion in Telshe- Stone, Israel. After almost two years, the Rabbi 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 1987 he received his Bachelors of Science from St. Thomas Aquinas, in psychology. In 1993 he became the assistant Rabbi at Brith Shalom Beth Israel Synagogue in Charleston, South Carolina. In July of 1996, Avram Bogopulsky assumed the mantle of leadership at Beth Jacob Congregation San Diego, California where he remains until today.
