Rabbi Yaakov Berkowitz

Director of Programming

Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, Rabbi Berkowitz grew up ensconced in the close-knit Torah community known as “Yeshiva Lane.” He studied at Ner Israel and the Yeshiva of Cliffwood, New Jersey before finally making his way to study at the famed Mir Yeshiva in Jerusalem. In 2008, Yaakov married St. Louisan Rivka Serel (Yaroslawitz), the eldest daughter of the worldwide entity known as “the Yari’s.” After residing in Israel for four years, the couple came back to St. Louis and Rabbi Berkowitz is currently the Director of Programming. They are the doting parents of five delightful children.
