Yeshaia Blakeney, Rabbinic Intern

Yeshaia Blakeney is a philosopher and a dreamer, always looking to the stars, whose teaching is rooted in the quest for pragmatic truths about existence and living. His uncontrived spirituality is the result of reading, learning, listening, participating, counseling, dancing, singing, teaching and mystical leanings.  Yeshaia is currently enrolled in Rabbinical School at AJRCA, pursuing a Masters in Rabbinics. As a student of Rabbi Finley, he was immediately drawn to his wisdom, his intellect and his willingness to engage in conversation. He knew from his very first class with Rabbi Finley that he wanted to study closely with him as often as possible.

Yeshaia is the co-founder of Recover Integrity Treatment Program and an addictions expert with 12 yrs experience working in treatment. Receiving his addictions counseling education at UCLA, he then received his BA from Antioch University. Specializing in spiritual counseling, philosophy of addiction, group facilitation and addiction education, Yeshaia's experience, knowledge and know-how is unique in the field of drug and alcohol treatment.  

A creative soul, Yeshaia is also a writer, producer and rapper of hip-hop soul music and is currently working on the most ambitious movie trilogy script in the history of this rotation of the universe...in his spare time.
