Rabbi Tzvi Alyesh
Rabbinic Outreach Associate
Hailing from Edison, New Jersey, Rabbi Tzvi Alyesh has been connecting with Jews for over a decade. After studying in Israel, and then for many years in Beis Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ, he received Rabbinic Ordination and Master’s in Talmudic Studies.  He also graduated from the Ner L’Elef program focused on the skills to share Torah with Jews of all affiliations

Tzvi has a great love of learning and truly enjoys sharing the sweetness of Torah with others. His passion and genuine love for every Jew has connected him with Jews all over the globe – including airports and gas stations. 

In his “spare time” Rabbi Alyesh enjoys perusing personal growth books, singing, exercise, tennis and good conversation.
Rebbetzin PB Alyesh
Outreach Associate
A born and bred Texan, Penina Bracha Alyesh, spent her formative years in Dallas, TX. Summers were focused on camp  – first the backyard variety and then stints as a mother’s helper, chief photographer, office manager and head waitress. Her organizational skills, giving nature, love of music and dancing made her GO head in high school and an integral part of multiple women’s artistic productions. Penina Bracha loves a good party – especially planning, cooking and baking for them.
Penina Bracha and her husband, Rabbi Tzvi, are the proud parents of a delightful daughter, Gitty.

This is Olami Denver Experience

Olami Denver Experience seeks to build community through an array of programs for Young Professionals in their 20’s and 30’s, in a non-judgmental environment, regardless of background or affiliation, which include social events, educational programs, weekly Shabbos dinners, sports, international volunteer opportunities, and travel

Olami Trekkers

We are blessed to have a community of Young Professionals who invest in the Olami Denver Experience on a monthly basis. Through their partnership we are able to continue to provide the dynamic programming that we do. Please consider partnering with us as a monthly giver.

Whether through our inspirational Jewish Educational opportunities, cutting edge social programs, meaningful social action opportunities, sports leagues or Shabbos Dinners, we aim to bring as many young people as possible together to celebrate the beauty of our heritage. Our Trekkers are not simply the beneficiaries of these programs– but they are vital leaders, role models and partners. Their commitment and acceptance of responsibility is what enables us to grow into a true community that will continue to thrive for years to come.

As a small token of our immense gratitude for our trekkers, whose monthly gifts ranges from $10-$130 a month, all trekkers attend our local programs for half off, and they are given customized Yeti water bottles. There are also exclusive Trekker Programs, including a private tour of a distillery, and much more.
