When Rabbi Eliyahu Yaakov was still a teenager, he noticed that the Jewish schools taught their students
HOW to follow the commandments, but now WHY the commandments needed to be followed.
After high school, he came to Israel where he continued asking questions.
With the help of mentors, Rabbi Eli found his answers, and went on to inspire others.
Now a rabbi living in Jerusalem's old city, Rabbi Eli lectures in a wide variety of locations:
college campuses in Israel and in North America, plus many birthright programs.
His books have become best-sellers on amazon, including Jewish By Choice: A Kabbalistic Take On Life & Judaism
and Human By Choice: A Kabbalistic Path To Self Help .
He and his wife continue to host students and visitors for Shabbat in their warm Jerusalem home.
Rabbi Eli believes there is a window of opportunity within which we can reach Jews who are disconnected to their own heritage,
and that if we miss the chance, it is only a matter of a generation or two
before the window will be closed to Jews who are cut off from their own neshamas.
He has a website called "Get Your Jew On," where many of his lectures are available on video : www.getyourjewon.com .
Tune in to meet a rabbi who understands what Jews today are looking for and knows how to answer even the most challenging questions.
