The Fish Interfaith Center is delighted to introduce our new part-time Director of Jewish Life and Chaplain to the University, Rabbi Corie Yutkin.
Rabbi Corie was born and raised in Chicago. She attended Bradley University and completed her Bachelor of Science in psychology from DePaul University. She received her Master of Arts in Hebrew Letters from Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles.
In 2005 Rabbi Corie began working at Temple Bat Yahm in Newport Beach, Calif., as a Rabbinic Assistant where she continued to work as an Assistant Rabbi after receiving her ordination in 2006. After being at Temple Bat Yahm for two years, she moved to Baton Rouge, La. and became the Rabbi at Congregation B’nai Israel for two years. After that, she returned to Los Angeles where she worked at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center as an interfaith chaplain, focusing her work in the liver transplant department of the hospital.
She is on the Executive Board of Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federation & Family Services, Orange County and is on the Hadassah Board. Last year, she served part-time as Rabbi for Hillel of Orange County and worked with students at Chapman University.
Join us in welcoming Rabbi Corie to Chapman!
