A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A STU­DENT CHAP­LAIN

The Jewish Chronicle - - News -

RABBI Alan Gar­ber is one of UJC’s busiest chap­lains, cov­er­ing uni­ver­si­ties in five cities across the York­shire and Hum­ber­side re­gion.

In ad­di­tion to help­ing stu­dents in Leeds, where he is based, he trav­els to Sh­effield, Brad­ford, York and Hull. “This morn­ing I was at a meet­ing to sup­port a stu­dent who had a mis­un­der­stand­ing with his exam re­sults and had to meet the vice- chan­cel­lor of the uni­ver­sity,” he ex­plains. “Af­ter­wards I had some in­ter­faith work and then I worked on the J-Soc stall at the fresh­ers’ fair.”

His as­sis­tance cov­ers all Jewish back­grounds, and a key pre-Yom­tov task has been ar­rang­ing fes­ti­val ser­vices for Pro­gres­sive stu­dents in the re­gion.
