Yaakov Shapiro grew up in Conservative, Modern Orthodox, Lithuanian-Charedi and Chabad­-Chasidic Jewish schools, earning rabbinical ordination in the latter.

A nine-year researcher, translator, writer and filmmaker for Chabad-­Lubavitch’s media wing, he is currently spending his days in the world of business. But he continues to spend the nights researching and writing on areas of Jewish belief that can, and have, put sincere students of Torah at risk – psychologically, emotionally, physically, and therefore spiritually – with the confident belief that exhaustive source-textual analysis and reexamined translation will uncover a balanced, humane understanding of the Creator’s plan for Its creation.


I look forward to hearing from you.
