Rabbi Yaakov Meyer

Founder

Rabbi Yaakov Meyer is Director of Aish Denver. He came to Denver in 1984 as an enthusiastic, charismatic, young New York rabbi, when the term “outreach” referred mostly to serving the needs of intermarried couples. Rabbi Meyer quickly became one of the pioneers who put a new spin on Jewish outreach – by serving the needs of Jews. After teaching hundreds of classes and inspiring thousands of metro-area Jews, in 1996, Rabbi Meyer established a unique organization which grew to become Aish Denver – a vibrant center of Jewish learning and discovery that has revolutionized the South East Denver Jewish community.
