Rabbi Simon Jacobson is the author of the best-selling book Toward a Meaningful Life, a William Morrow publication that has sold over 300,000 copies to date and has been translated into 12 languages.

Rabbi Jacobson also heads The Meaningful Life Center, called a “Spiritual Starbucks” by the New York Times, which bridges the secular and the spiritual through a wide variety of live and on-line programming.

Beginning in 1979, he headed a team of scholars that memorized and transcribed entire talks that the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of blessed memory, delivered during the Sabbath and holidays, and published more than 1000 of the Rebbe’s talks.

Rabbi Jacobson has lectured to diverse audiences on six continents, and has been interviewed on over 300 radio and TV shows, including CNN with Larry King, the Charlie Rose Show, and the CBS News Show The Best of Us. He is also the publisher of The Algemeiner Journal, the “fastest growing Jewish newspaper in America,” according to CNBC.
