Marpeh – Clinical Pastoral Care

Marpeh, the first accredited training program in CPE (clinical pastoral care) inIsrael, was established by Schechter in 2006. Pastoral care, involving listening, consolation and compassion to help people confront significant life challenges, constitutes an important missing service for patients and their families inIsrael. Entrenched in Jewish values such as “bikkur holim” (visiting the sick) “gemilut hasadim” (deeds of loving-kindness), Marpeh students are being trained to offer spiritual support to chronically and terminally ill patients. Marpeh students include educators, health care professionals, social workers and rabbis from diverse backgrounds and religious orientations. They perform supervised fieldwork in hospitals, nursing homes and other community institutions, offering support and solace to hundreds of Israelis in need. Courses at the Schechter Institute inJerusaleminclude counseling, crisis intervention, Jewish medical ethics and Jewish customs regarding illness and mourning. The program, as part of the M.A. degree program at Schechter, is the only academic program inIsraeloffering certification in Clinical Pastoral Education, and has been on the cutting edge of the field since its inception.

The Marpei pastoral care certification course is offered in two modular units of 200 hours of training: a 2-semester course or an intensive summer program.
