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)!

North East

Chaplain: Rabbi Aaron Lipsey

Aaron Lipsey is the Jewish Chaplain for Newcastle, Northumbria universities and Durham universities and the Rabbi of the Newcastle United Hebrew Congregation. He is married to Miriam and they have five children who all love having students for dinner - even the chewy bits. He is personable and able to relate well with students of all backgrounds.
