Ezra Cohen is a third-year rabbinical student at Yeshiva University's Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary. He graduated Brandeis University summa cum laude (Phi Beta Kappa) in 2018 with Bachelors' Degrees in Psychology and Near Eastern/Judaic Studies, where he wrote a senior honors thesis on the Jewish legal treatment of depressive disorders. Right now, Ezra serves as the rabbinic intern at Beth Jacob Congregation in Oakland, California, teaches at a local synagogue in New York (at least pre-covid!), and eats lots of hummus.
In his free time, he writes music and enjoys DJing and mountain biking. Following rabbinical school, he is looking forward to bringing love and Torah to the American Jewish community on a professional level.
