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)!

Leeds & Yorkshire

Chaplaincy couple: Rabbi Eli Magzimof & Rivka Magzimof

 Eli and Rivka have made a fabulous impact since they arrived in September 2014, building incredibly close relationships with many of the estimated 1500 Jewish students across Yorkshire. They are great fun and provide regular events for students in Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield and beyond. There are also regional events to ensure that this major student hub is brought together. Known as the 'Running Rabbi', Eli - a former Paratrooper in the Israeli Defence Forces - ran the London Marathon for University Jewish Chaplaincy to help raise vital funds. They are a dynamic couple who will do anything in their power to make your university journey exciting and meaningful.
