Rabbi Dr. Aryeh Cohen is Professor of Rabbinic Literature at the Ziegler School for Rabbinic Studies of the American Jewish University, and the Rabbi in Residence at Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice. He sits on the board of Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE). Cohen’s current research and writing is at the intersection of rabbinics and political activism. His latest book is Justice in the City: An Argument from the Sources of Rabbinic Judaism. He is also working on a feminist commentary to Tractate Shabbat of the Babylonian Talmud, which is part of an international feminist commentary project on the Babylonian Talmud, which will be published by Mohr Siebeck. Rabbi Cohen teaches most things rabbinic at Ziegler, and takes his Torah to the streets in the effort to bring about criminal justice reform, economic justice, racial justice, and generally to create a more just society. In May he was named a Giant of Justice by CLUE in recognition of his activism.
