Jacobson served as a senior fellow at the Chabad Lubavitch Rabbinical Seminary Chovevei Torah where he taught Talmud, Kabbalah, and Hasidic philosophy. In 2005, he replaced his late father Gershon Jacobson as editor-in-chief of the Yiddish weekly Algemeiner Journal, who revitalized the journal[3] for a number of years. He served as the spiritual leader of Congregation Beis Shmuel Chabad in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, New York, and is the dean of TheYeshiva.net, where he presents weekly classes and lectures. Many of his classes are based on the weekly parsha and he delivers a special lecture before Jewish festivals. His classes expertly weave together lomdus and hashkofoh. [4]
