Certificate Program In Gerontology and Palliative Care Open House
The Wurzweiler School of Social Work at Yeshiva University is looking for the third cohort of students for its program: The Rabbinic Certificate in Gerontology and Palliative Care [ed. Note: the name will soon be changed to reflect inclusion beyond rabbis].
The course of study equips Jewish clergy (rabbis, cantors, chaplains, and rabbinic/cantorial students) to work more effectively to address the crises which affect constituents and their families in the areas of eldercare and serious illness. Obviously, this is a big concern for all of us looking at the future of the Jewish community throughout the world.
Rabbis, cantors, and chaplains are invited to apply to the program (rabbinic and cantorial students also welcome) which is entirely online and mostly asynchronous. The Certificate includes six courses that may be completed in one year or two. For students deciding to continue on with an MSW, full credit toward the degree will be given for these courses.
Courses are eight weeks long and include readings and vigorous written discussions online. Courses begin October 25, 2020. Past cohorts have been broadly trans-denominational.
Tuition is heavily offset by generous foundation funding. Tuition is $810 per course; $500 for students. Please see the attached flyer for information.
