With the start of the 2018-19 school year upon us, we are highlighting members of the incoming class of students. Click here to see all of the articles in this series.
Today we’re talking with incoming Chapliancy student Noah Pollock, who began his AJRCA journey in the spring.
Q1) Where do you live?
I live in Encino, California
Q2) How did you first hear of AJRCA?
I heard about it from an ad in the Jewish Journal and Jonah Sanderson.
Q3) What was it about AJRCA that drew you to enroll here?
I want to be a chaplain for the United States Navy and the other graduate programs I looked into wouldn’t offer the Clinical Pastoral Education until the 5th year of the program. Also it’s a nondenominational school so I thought it would be beneficial to have exposure to different branches of Judaism.
Q4) What were you doing prior to enrolling?
I was studying at a Chabad Yeshiva in Miami.
Q5) As you embark on this experience, what are you most excited about?
I’m most excited to continue my journey to become a chaplain and continue learning and impacting this community.
