Rabbi Motti & Mushkie Harlig established YJP Las Vegas in December of 2016. Their vision was to create a Young Jewish Adult family where everyone feels comfortable, accepted and part of a greater community. Judaism is not just do’s and don’ts, but has more meaning and purpose to it and can be practiced in a real, fun and exciting way!
Rabbi Motti was actually born in Las Vegas and spent his childhood in the Desert Torah Academy Day-school through 8th grade. For high school and Rabbinical College he relocated to Yeshivas in Chicago, IL & Miami, FL. He commenced his Rabbinic studies and received his Rabbinic certification in New Haven, CT.
Mushkie was born in Pittsburgh, PA and went to school there through high-school. She had the privilege to spend a year of Seminary in the holy land of Israel before returning back to the USA.
Rabbi Motti & Mushkie got married in June of 2015 and spent a year in Brooklyn, NY before permanently moving to Las Vegas. They have two Children, Rivkie & Mendel.
