Remembering Dr. Samuel Klagsbrun (z”l)

JTS mourns the death of Dr. Samuel Klagsbrun (z”l), a skilled psychiatrist, professor, and advocate. Dr. Klagsbrun received a Seminary College degree from JTS in 1954 and later went on to receive a medical degree. Dr. Klagsbrun taught pastoral psychiatry for many years to JTS students, was an important resource during the creation of The Center for Pastoral Education, and provided great assistance before the JTS Counseling Center was established. He was the inaugural honoree of the CPE Benefit Luncheon in 2016. You can listen to an interview with Francine and Samuel Klagsbrun from JTS’s archives about “Love and Marriage” here
