Rabbi Yaakov Menken

Rabbi Yaakov Menken is the founder of Project Genesis, and creator of many of its sites and programs. You will find hundreds of Torah commentaries authored by Yaakov Menken on this site and elsewhere.

Rabbi Menken is also the founder and CEO of Capalon Communications, Inc., which offers commercial telephone, data and design services. Through Capalon, Project Genesis is able to tap into a growing pool of talented Internet professionals, who grow their skills on a commercial level while applying their talents to Project Genesis and Jewish outreach.

Recently, Rabbi Menken led the technical development of Contact Loved Ones, an open voicemail system for those displaced by recent natural disasters. This story was picked up by the general media and especially by technical publications.

Rabbi Yaakov Menken has been called a 'visionary' in the field of Jewish Outreach. Project Genesis supports outreach organizations worldwide, while operating Torah.org, the Internet's premier Jewish learning web site. Both Yaakov Menken and his organization maintain open communication with Jews at all levels of learning and education, and Project Genesis is endorsed by Jewish leaders from across the Jewish spectrum.

Rabbi Menken earned his Bachelor's degree from Princeton University in Computer Science, and pursued Rabbinic studies in Yeshivas Ohr Somayach, Beth Medrash Gavoha in Lakewood and Jerusalem, and the Mirrer Yeshiva Jerusalem, before founding Project Genesis in 1993.

Rabbi Yaakov Menken is the author of a recent book in the "Everything" series from Adams Media; The Everything Torah Book is a general introduction to Torah beliefs, philosophy, and history, with a generous mix of Torah thoughts originally published on Torah.org.
