The Academy for Jewish Religion, California (AJR-CA), located in Los Angeles, trains rabbis, cantors and chaplains to serve congregations and organizations of any denomination. In January 2013 Tamar Frankiel became the president of the Academy for Jewish Religion, making her the first Orthodox woman to lead an American rabbinical school. The school itself is transdenominational, not Orthodox. Later in 2013, the Academy moved from the Yitzchak Rabin Hillel Center for Jewish Life at UCLA to a building in Koreatown shared with the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles.
AJRCA is the only Jewish graduate institution in the US that prepares people to become board certified chaplains through a Clinical Pastoral Education Program - See more at: https://ajrca.edu/reflections-on-my-mother-judaism-and-radical-life-extension/
