Chaplaincy

Yeshiva Gedola Rabbinical College of Sydney prepares young men to become rabbis. The training comprises an intensive program of learning and a significant amount of communal outreach and pastoral work.

Most of our ordained graduates go on to become practicing ministers of religion; all continue to involve themselves in communal service. Among those who have graduated from our College or otherwise served the Yeshiva in a professional capacity are a number of current chaplains.

Rabbi Elimelech Levy, Chaplain to the NSW State Emergency Service, is the Yeshiva's Director of Outreach. A Londoner, Rabbi Levy received his training and ordination at Yeshiva Gedola Rabbinical College of Sydney.

Rabbi Mendel Kastel, Chaplain to the NSW Police Force, is Executive Director of The Jewish House, a crisis centre established by the Yeshiva. Originally from New York, Rabbi Kastel received his training and ordination at Yeshiva Gedola Rabbinical College of Sydney.

Rabbi Yossi Segelman, Chaplain to the Australian Defence Force, also serves as chaplain to Sydney Airport. Originally from London, Rabbi Segelman received his training and ordination at Yeshiva Gedola Rabbinical College of Sydney.

Rabbi Dovid Slavin, a native New Yorker, is Chaplain to the Ambulance Service of NSW. Rabbi Slavin is Executive Director of Yeshiva Gedola Rabbinical College of Sydney.

Rabbi Yoram Ulman is Chaplain to the NSW Department of Corrective Services. Born in Australia of Russian parents, Rabbi Ulman is the minister of F.R.E.E. (Friends of Refugees from Eastern Europe), a synagogue and community centre established by the Yeshiva.

These rabbis have taken action to involve themselves in the area of chaplaincy as a way of making a contribution to the community and to the personnel who serve it in times of need. They see this work also as a valued opportunity to impart an ongoing ethos of civic participation to the student rabbis who follow them through the doors of the Yeshiva Gedola Rabbinical College of Sydney.
