Historical Note

The Jewish Theological Seminary's department of pastoral psychiatry was founded in 1953, for the purpose of training rabbinical students in psychological couselling. In 1965 the Morris J. and Ethel Bernstein Center in Pastoral Psychiatry was founded. The center offered "diagnosis, short term counseling, referral, and assistance to rabbis who encounter congregants with serious problems" and as a training center for rabbinical students. (See The Jewish Theological Seminary Register, 1977- 1982)
