UVic needs Jewish Chaplain

Rabbi in classApplication due date: September 05, 2017 — The University of Victoria needs a part-time volunteer Jewish Chaplain who can provide on campus support for Jewish students who are far from home and seeking answers to their questions from a Jewish perspective. You don’t have to be a Rabbi to do this job. You just need to have a good heart; a reasonable working knowledge of Jewish values, culture, and ritual; good communication skills; openness to diversity in all its forms; and some free time.

The Jewish Federation of Victoria and Vancouver Island (JFVVI)  has been asked to make a recommendation to the University. The UVic Jewish Chaplain will work as part of the UVic Multifaith Services team.

Contact: Former Jewish Chaplain at UVic Sharon Kobrinsky
Long-serving Chaplain Henri Lock
Aaron Devor JFVVI Past-President and Search Committee Chair
To apply for the position, send a letter to JFVVI describing your interests and background, a short resume, and the names of two references (we will only contact them when you say it is OK to do so). Please send your letter via email to ahdevor@uvic.ca.
Application due date: September 05, 2017.
