Rabbi Yom Tov Glaser is not your typical rabbi! The son of a successful sportswear manufacturer, Rabbi Yom Tov was raised in the foothills of Hollywood, California. With the Pacific Ocean nearby, he was surfing from a young age, and grew up traveling the world on surf-travel expeditions. On the days when the waves were small, he’d jump on his bike and pedal to the local hills, where he developed into a hard-core mountain biker, which he remains til today. To complete the picture, the home Rabbi Yom Tov grew up in was an extremely musical one, which explains why he and his guitar remain so connected even now.
Those years of surfing, mountain biking, music, and partying left Yom Tov with insight and inquiry into human character, the meaning of life and alternative spirituality. Those insights provoked an insatiable quest for truth. Frustrated by a lack of answers from his college education (his B.A. is from the University of California in Santa Barbara), Yom Tov moved to Israel in 1991 to explore his Jewish origins, hoping to get clarity in the process. A summer program at the Aish HaTorah College of Jewish Studies evolved into seven years of intense learning, with Yom Tov finally getting the knowledge he’d always sought.
In 1998, Yom Tov received rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Natan Kupshitz of Beit Shemesh and Rav Yitzchak Berkowitz of Aish HaTorah.
He then trained in Psycho-Spiritual Therapy with renowned Jerusalem-based psychotherapist, Efim Svirsky, and credits this coursework with introducing him to his gifts in “spiritual therapy”. Rabbi Yom Tov is one of the top addresses in the Jewish world for helping individuals break through deep emotional/physiological blocks and to come closer to the G-d experience.
Since 2000, Rabbi Glaser has a been a senior Rabbi at Aish HaTorah’s World Center in the Old City of Jerusalem. Known as a master orator, Rabbi Yom Tov can be found lecturing (and entertaining) for groups and organizations worldwide. Few people can hold a crowd’s attention as Rabbi Yom Tov can, regardless of his audience’s age or level of Jewish observance.
In 2002, Rabbi Glaser founded the internationally acclaimed Possible You Seminar, a week-long self-transformation experience, which he offers both in Jerusalem and abroad. Today, the Possible You is Rabbi Yom Tov’s most significant project and we invite you to read more about it under its own tab on this site.
Rabbi Yom Tov is part of the Pinsk Karlin Chassidic Shul in Meah Shearim, where the congregation is known for screaming every word of their prayer service at the top of their lungs. He is also a student of a Chasidic Rebbe whose life’s work is the research and practice of Kabbalistic reality. Learning with this Rebbe takes place around his long wood table, and extends into the wee hours of the night.
Rabbi Glaser now resides in Jerusalem with his wife, Leah, and their children and grandchildren. He studies, teaches, plays music and adventures the world over, sharing internationally what he calls “transformational education.”
For The Possible You Seminar
The Mission Possible Seminar
We all know deep down that we’re created in the image of G-d, that we’re here in this world to connect to Him and to our loved ones and that we’re meant to be happy. So what’s getting in our way?
The Possible You is a game-changing seminar that creates the space for participants to realize their unlimited potential. It is rapidly growing in popularity and is offered in Israel, the US, UK and Canada. There are now more than 3000 inspired graduates worldwide that credit The Possible You with initiating significant transformation in their lives.
With an intensely paced delivery of profound insights coupled with music, a crucial set of life tools is communicated to the full spectrum of learners in all modalities. Taught by Jerusalem-based teacher Rabbi Yom Tov Glaser Shlita and specially trained staff members, The Possible You is an amalgamation of personal growth wisdom that spans the last several centuries of Jewish thought.
This step-by-step, twenty-four hour course investigates what makes each of us tick. Participants work in new realms of trust and commitment, connecting with truth, respect for one another and respect for themselves. Participants enter as strangers and leave as allies and loving friends, taking a stand for each other’s success in life. They open the door to estranged family members and experience real healing for wounds gathered over life’s journey.
We know that the most valuable parts of our lives are made up of relationships and other seemingly mundane interactions. How can we learn to transform and maximize these and live within the full potential of who we truly can be?
During childhood we inevitably acquire fears and negative patterns, which begin to shape an emerging identity. These patterns follow us into adulthood unconsciously and eventually manifest into problems within relationships and our own feelings of self-worth, limiting our potential for growth and happiness.
The Possible You begins by taking you through your past, showing you who you have been and who you have become. You will learn to identify the root of these fears and the impacts they have on your life and those around you. After the identification process, you can begin to transform your entire life and your relationships with family, friends, financial dealings, parenting and raising children.
Barriers between family and friends are rectified while financial limitations dissolve. You learn to deeply value your relationships and become honest, open and loving in your everyday interactions. Suddenly Hashem’s world opens up to you and is awaiting your input and unique light.
