He is the Director of the Jewish Outreach Initiative (JOI), a bold initiative that is changing the landscape of Jewish Denver. JOI’s goal is to provide authentic Jewish experiences and learning opportunities for people of all backgrounds in a meaningful and engaging way.

Their mission is to respond to the call of 21st century Jews, no matter what background, looking to understand their heritage and develop a relationship with God.

Rabbi Lehrfield's warmth, genuine love for every Jew, and approachability allow him to connect with people of all ages and from all backgrounds. He's is a dynamic and engaging educator who's use of analogy and humor allow deep, profound ideas to come alive and be understood by all - from novice to expert.

Rabbi Lehrfield received his M.Ed from Loyola University, Chicago and received two rabbinic ordinations ; from Yeshivas Beis Yisroel in Jerusalem, and from Rabbi Zalman Nechemia Goldberg, the Chief Justice of the Jerusalem High Court.

Rabbi Lehrfield’s passion lies not only in spreading the beauty and relevance of Judaism to all Jews, but in photography, graphic design, mountain climbing and snowboarding.
