Accessing Support – University of Law

Chaplaincy services for the University of Law are located in the Emmanuel Centre, next to the Parkinson Building on Woodhouse Lane. A chaplain can also visit you in your office, home or other mutually agreed location. The Chaplaincy is here for staff and students.

Chaplains are available for drop-in visits and for appointments, and we have a 24/7 emergency phone service.

Use the Chaplaincy:

  • Whether you have a faith (Christian, Jewish, Muslim etc.) or have no religious beliefs.
  • When you need someone independent and confidential to talk to.
  • If you’re finding life difficult or you have a tricky decision to make.
  • If you have lost someone close to you.
  • If want to explore spirituality.

We will not try to make you religious, we are here to help you in any way that we can.

Robin Fishwick first came to Emmanuel Church as a member of its choir in 1979. He was a Roman Catholic back then and became a Quaker in 1989, so he knows something about ecumenical diversity. He is the senior Quaker Chaplain and currently Co-ordinating Chaplain.

As well as Breathe Quaker style worship, Robin is also involved in Unity Events and the Inspired Music Nights. Robin is also a keen environmentalist, a singer, songwriter, musician and ceilidh caller.

Jewish Chaplain – Rabbi Eli Magzimof

eli@mychaplaincy.co.uk

Rabbi Eli Magzimof and his wife Rivka have made a fabulous impact since they arrived in September 2014, building incredibly close relationships with many of the estimated 1500 Jewish students across Yorkshire. They are great fun and provide regular events for students in Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield and beyond. There are also regional events to ensure that this major student hub is brought together. Known as the ‘Running Rabbi’, Eli – a former Paratrooper in the Israeli Defence Forces – ran the London Marathon for University Jewish Chaplaincy to help raise vital funds. They are a dynamic couple who will do anything in their power to make your university journey exciting and meaningful.
