Rabbi Arthur, as he is called by his congregation, leads the spiritually based
Community Shul of Montecito and Santa Barbara.

Professor Gross Schaefer speaks and writes on professional and personal ethics, effective ethical decision-making, academic freedom, medical ethics, freedom of religion, spirituality in the workplace, burnout for attorneys, clergy and business professionals.

He is also the chairman of the board for the Avi Schaefer Fund, named after his deceased son Avi and devoted to changing the campus climate around the Israeli-Palestinian debate on college campuses.  His wife, Laurie Gross Schaefer, is an internationally known artist and liturgical consultant.  He views his sons Elisha, Yoav, Avi z”l, and Noah as his university.

"While I have received many honors and experienced a variety of outstanding
events over the years, the extreme joy of a book signing is one the most
significant highlights of my life. This only happened because of the
supportive and trusting relationship with the Gaon Publishing House. The
staff was highly professional and very easy to work with. Communication
between us was instantaneous and allowed for the process of publication to
be both highly positive and creative. Thank you Gaon."
