«Barkai is very pleased to announce a major grant that we have received to endow the Chaplaincy Training Program, which is commencing this fall. The generous gift was received from Lew Pell, and the program will now be known as the Pell Family Chaplaincy Training Program.
Barkai, as part of its mission to produce better rabbis, will be partnering with Life's Door/Tishkofet to provide Barkai fellows with Certified Pastoral Education. The program will certify graduates to offer spiritual counseling in public institutions such as hospitals, schools and jails. It will also enable graduates to better serve congregants struggling with personal difficulties, illness and end-of-life situations. »
