Joint Program in Mental Health Counseling Strengthens Critical Skill Set

On Sunday, June 23, 2019, certificates of completion for the RIETS/Ferkauf Joint Program in Mental Health Counseling were awarded to 10 students from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS). Also attending the ceremony and celebratory breakfast were the students’ families and professors, as well as school administrators.

A joint venture of RIETS and Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, the counseling program prepares young men entering the rabbinate or pursuing careers in Jewish education to have a broader and deeper understanding of the psychological and emotional needs of their prospective congregants and students.
