A master mechanech, he began his teaching career in Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim of Baltimore approximately 65 years ago.
He then taught in Yeshiva Bais Yehuda in Detroit, and then at Toras Emes in Brooklyn.
After his marriage, he went back to teach in Detroit.
He then moved to Lakewood where he spent many years teaching at the Lakewood day school.
Eventually, he moved to New York and was a longtime rebbe in Beer Hagolah.
Wherever he taught, he had a tremendous influence on his students, and today there are tens of frum families who became Frum because of Rabbi Reiss.
He leaves behind his wife Susan, his partner in all of his spiritual endeavors. His sons are Avrohom, Chaim (Lakewood), Raphael, and Pesach (Lakewood). His daughters are Rochel and Leah, and his daughter Malka predeceased him.
