Rabbi Bochi Broh
I'm the Jewish Chaplain on campus. I have spent the past 10 years travelling the world as a Rabbi, helping serve different communities in countries such as Nigeria, Serbia, Israel, Italy, Canada, US and China to name just a few. Life is short and precious, and it's my mission to bring out the best within each individual, helping people to focus on the good. 'Think good and it will be good!' Feel free to contact me whenever and wherever so together we can help make this place a world G-d would be proud to call His home.
