American Jewish History
Cohen earned his Ph.D. in American Jewish History from Brandeis University, and his dissertation analyzed the origins of Conservative Judaism. His current project, The Birth of Conservative Judaism: How Solomon Schechter's Disciples Created an American Religious Movement (forthcoming, Columbia University Press), argues that Conservative rabbis were largely responsible for creating the movement. Cohen also specialized in regional Jewish history, having worked both in New England and the American South. Cohen received his AB with honors from Brown University.
