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)!

Chaplaincy couple: Rabbi Dan Gigi & Laura Gigi

The region's new Couple, Rabbi Dan and Laura, are looking forward to meeting local students and creating the activities that interest you by "experimenting and trying things out". They hail from London, but have spent the past few years in Israel. 

They are "excited to share what we have learnt in Yeshiva with students at university. We want to provide a fresh perspective on Judaism in a way that is personal and meaningful". Their ethos is: "using ancient Jewish wisdom to navigate through the modern world".  They love art, yoga, meditation, social action, environmentalism, upcycling, freecycling and cycling.
