Chief Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs was born and raised in Amsterdam. The first members of the Jacobs family were already in the Netherlands around 1400. After his Gymnasium Exams and a study of 8 years at the Ecole Rabbinique of Paris, the Lubavitcher Talmudic High School of Brooklyn and the Talmud College of the Negev (Israel) he returned to the Netherlands in 1975, to devote himself to Dutch Jewry. Rabbi Jacobs is the Chief Rabbi of the Interprovinciaal Opperrabbinaat, chairman of the Rabbinical Council for the Netherlands and the chaplain of the Sinai Centre in Amstelveen, the only Jewish psychiatric hospital in Europe. He is on the board of the RCE, the Rabbinical Centre of Europe.
