Rabbi Cohen has served as the rabbi of Congregation B’nai B’rith in Santa Barbara since 2004. Previously, he served as the rabbi and executive director of the Hillel Foundation at UC Santa Barbara for 19 years.

A native of Rochester, N.Y., Rabbi Cohen received his undergraduate degree in American history from Harvard University in 1979 and Rabbinic ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 1985.

Now in his capacity as rabbi of the B’nai B’rith congregation, Cohen’s primary responsibilities include teaching a wide array of classes for adults and youth, guiding the development of the congregation’s worship program, providing pastoral counseling for congregants in need, helping families move through the great passages of life with love and meaning, and working closely with the volunteer leadership of the congregation to build a vibrant Jewish community.

Rabbi Cohen is involved with several other Santa Barbara organizations and institutions, including the Alliance for Living and Dying Well, the Greater Santa Barbara Clergy Association and Cottage Hospital Spiritual Care.

His passion for compassionate and charitable care is shared with his wife, Marian. Together, they have two children, Rachel and Ari.

Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care is the area’s leading nonprofit provider of comprehensive in-home health care.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
