About our Rabbi
Rabbi Tom Cohen was born and raised in Oregon. His interest in Judaism’s religious philosophy and way of life developed during his early university years at Portland State University, then at the University of Judaism in Los Angeles, where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Jewish Studies, after which he made the decision to enter the rabbinate. For the next six years, under the auspices of the Jewish Theological Seminary, Rabbi Cohen studied in Los Angeles, Jerusalem, and New York. He was ordained in 1991 and became a resident of France, living in Paris and working with several non-orthodox communities, including the English speaking havurah which became Kehilat Gesher in 1993.
Join Kehilat Gesher and you will appreciate the opportunity to work with him on your spiritual development, family questions, and other questions where you think that Jewish inspiration can be of help.
