Each Chaplaincy region is different from one another and has specific requirements. Chaplains and Chaplaincy couples are strategically selected, placed and trained to meet the needs of each region.

We like to think of it as a shidduch (Yiddish for arranged marriage)!

Birmingham & West Midlands

Chaplain: Rabbi Fishel Cohen

 Having been Chaplain in Birmingham and for campuses in the Midlands for over 30 years, Fishel has experienced the tremendous growth of the student population in the region. He is not only a great pastoral figure but also has the contacts and know-how to represent you on any matter of concern to your faculty - whichever university in the region you are at. Most important to know is that his trademark events, warm hospitality and his wife Esther's chocolate cake have inspired generations of students. So whether you are in Birmingham, Warwick, Northampton, Wolverhampton or anywhere else in the region, do get in touch!
