On February 4, 2020, we had the pleasure of inviting Rabbi Emily Cohen and Ithaca College students for conversation and a live podcast recording of "Jew Too?" a podcast celebrating the growing diversity of the American Jewish family.
We got to hear the stories of students who are Jewish and whose identities are intersectional, hearing about their joys, struggles, and places of curiosity within the multitude of identities that they hold.
Rabbi Emily Cohen is a San Francisco-rooted, East Coast-raised, Twin Cities-educated graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Philadelphia. Her relatively complex geographic history informs her approach to the rabbinate: connecting people to something or someone that deepens their experience of existence. An artist and educator, her professional experience ranges from corralling preschoolers into baking challah to herding teenagers on wilderness treks to leading adult education classes on Judaism and Social Justice.
