Jacob is ecstatic to jump aboard the LCLJ family train as a Full Time Educator this year!
Jacob attended Solomon Schechter School of Queens from K-8, where he learned the basics of Hebrew and Torah, while simultaneously handling the gruesome 8-game season of Jewish Little League. Jacob was also active in United Synagogue Youth (USY) youth group. He served as the Metropolitan Regional President in 2013, representing over 1000 teenagers, cultivating Jewish identity and leadership among Jewish teens across New York, and managing an Executive Board to create engaging programs, including an 8-day sleep away retreat for over 500 teens at Camp Ramah in the Berkshires. Jacob carried his love and passion for Jewish life to SUNY Albany, where he served as Aish President and partook in weekly Hillel and L’Chaim activities. Following graduation, Jacob is excited to pursue his interests in finance and Jewish education and join the LCLJ community. You can catch Jacob outside the office writing comedy, running, or trying out a new banana bread recipe.
