Who is Rabbi Jacobson?
Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak (YY) Jacobson is one of the most sought after speakers in the Jewish world today, lecturing to Jewish and non-Jewish audiences on six continents and in forty states, and serving as a teacher and mentor to thousands across the globe. He is considered one of the most mesmerizing orators internationally, culling his ideas from the entire spectrum of Jewish thought and making them relevant to contemporary audiences. Rabbi Jacobson serves as the spiritual leader of congregation Bais Shmuel in Brooklyn, and is the dean of www.TheYeshiva.net, teaching via the web one of the largest Torah classes in the world today, with thousands of students globally. He is the first rabbi to have given the keynote address to the US military chaplains, and the 34,000 employees of the National Security Agency, and serves a columnist in the largest Yiddish English newspaper existing today, The Algemeiner Journal.
[In 1988, at the age of 15, a young Jacobson was taken in to serve on a small team of "oral scribes" and human tape recorders, charged with the obligation to memorize and transcribe 3 to 7 hours of talks by the Lubavitcher Rebbe of blessed memory presented on Sabbath and Jewish holidays when recording devices are not used.]
