Rabbi Menachem Lehrfield

NextDor Member, Denver, CO

 

What do you do?
I am the Director of a Denver Jewish non profit called the Jewish Outreach Initiative (JOI) that provides meaningful and engaging classes, innovative programming, and exciting social events to Jews looking to connect Jewishly outside of the traditional Synagogue setting.

What do you bring with you?
I am surrounded by passionate Jews of all walks of life that have a the desire and capacity to help Israel in so many ways. I look forward to being able to connect them to opportunities that will allow them to help Israeli companies tap into new markets.

Why Homrun?
I was leading a trip of young adults to Israel this past winter and had the privilege of taking them to see several Israeli startups including Homrun. I fell in love with the overall concept and decided then and there that I would love to do anything I could to make sure Homrun and Israel continue to thrive in the future.
