Bio: Rabbi Jacobson is a musmach of Yeshivas Rabbeinu Yitzchak Elchanan, and earned a Masters degree in Education and Administration at the Azrieli Graduate School, as well as a Bachelors degree in Economics at Yeshiva University. He is also the dynamic and dedicated Rav of Young Israel of Monsey and Wesley Hills. He is not only the menahel , but also the proud father of current students and alumni.

Prior to assuming his current position, Rabbi Jacobson served as a popular rebbe at Yeshiva University for nearly twenty years, forging meaningful and lasting relationships with his talmidim, many of whom continue to join the Jacobson family for Shabbatot and Yamim Tovim.  Rabbi Jacobson has also taught at Yeshiva of Los Angeles High School for Girls and Yeshiva Ohr Sameach, among other venues, and,  for thirteen years,  held the position of Rosh Kollel/Director of James Striar Summer Kollel.  Some of his Shiurm are available online as part of the Naaleh project.
In each of his various administrative and teaching roles, Rabbi Jacobson exudes warmth, commitment, and concern, qualities that have allowed ASHAR to flourish as a first-rate makom Torah committed to fusing a superior Torah and general studies education with love of Israel and middot tovot.
Rabbi Jacobson takes pride in remaining accessible and is happy to meet with parents at their convenience.  His true pride, however, is the nachas of watching our young charges happily and energetically absorb the lessons that will one day allow them to make their mark in this world as true mekadshei shem shamayim.
