Discover Your Unique Voice

Our mission is to demonstrate how Chassidus speaks to our personal lives in a deeply relevant way. MyLife strives to take the teachings’ of the Rebbeim and make it accessible and practical to every person.

Our Mission

MyLife is a pioneering Hafotzas HaMayanot Chutza initiative. Formed in 2014 by Rabbi Simon Jacobson, MyLife addresses the personal and emotional needs of our community and answers the most pressing questions of our lives—from the perspective of Torah, as elucidated specifically in Chassidic thought.

The Torah and especially its spiritual dimension provides us with tremendous insight into the psyche and soul, offering us tools and life skills – as well as how to build the confidence and courage – to deal with any issue that comes our way. MyLife is meant to address this deep need, by demonstrating the profound relevance of Torah to our lives and asking the questions that many are afraid to ask….

MyLife provides eye-opening advice from the Rebbeim, gleaned from letters, sichos and maamorim that address our personal issues with disarming relevance, demonstrating how the Rebbeim provided us with a comprehensive blueprint of the human psyche.

One thing is very clear: there is deep hunger and a desperate search out there for answers to our daily struggles. People are hurting and are seeking direction. Many are wondering, “Where is Chassidus when I need it most? Does Chassidus have the answers to my personal dilemmas?” This ongoing series proves that indeed, Chassidus does have all the answers to our questions.
