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)!


Chaplain: Rabbi Gavin Broder

Popularly known as Rav Gav, London Region’s Jewish Student Chaplain for 15 years is also the former Chief Rabbi of Ireland and Chaplain to more universities than anyone else on the team! Rav Gav Broder is regularly found giving 'Lunch & Learns' on different campuses, distributing rogelach, representing Jewish causes within the universities and offering one on one attention where needed to students of all backgrounds and affiliations.  

 Students should contact him to sign up for the new weekly Central London Student Friday Night Dinners, created to ensure that students in the area have a social hub over Shabbat. He also runs the Student Lounge at Central Synagogue which is a popular 'chill zone' for the Capital's Jewish students.
