Rabbi Aryeh Cohen will teach from his newly released book, Justice in the City: An Argument from the Sources of Rabbinic Judaism. The text argues, based on the Babylonian Talmud and early rabbinic writings, that a just city should be a community of obligation towards those who are not always visible: workers, the poor, and the homeless. Following Rabbi Cohen’s teaching, he will take questions.
Aryeh Cohen teaches all things Rabbinic Literature (Mishnah, Talmud, midrash) and social justice at the Ziegler School for Rabbinic Studies of the American Jewish University.
Prof. Cohen is a board member of Rabbis for Human Rights-North America, Progressive Jewish Alliance-Jewish Funds for Justice and is active with CLUE-LA.
