Meet JOI

Without this amazing group of people, we would never be able to offer the depth of commitment or the breadth of impactful events and programs here at JOI Denver.

Rabbi Lehrfield

Rabbi Menachem Lehrfield received his M.Ed from Loyola University, Chicago and received two rabbinic ordinations from Yeshivas Beis Yisroel in Jerusalem and Rabbi Zalman Nechemia Goldberg, the former Cheif Justice of the Jerusalem High Court.

Rabbi Lehrfield’s passion lies not only in spreading the beauty and relevance of Judaism to all Jews, but in photography, graphic design, mountain climbing and snowboarding. His warmth, genuine love for every Jew, and approachability allow him to connect with people of all ages and from all backgrounds.
