Moshe David Hacohen

Everyone is welcome to join Orot Yisrael for a very special Shabbat experience filled with rejuvenating song, davening, learning and hearty communal meals.  We will be joined by a guest teacher from Israel, Moshe David Hacohen, a Presidential Fellowship Doctoral Candidate at the Department of History of the University of Haifa in Israel.  In his dissertation, Moshe David applies interdisciplinary resources in order to explore the adaptation of Jewish tradition through the interaction of Shlomo Carlebach with the “counterculture” of the Sixties in the United States.  He has been honored as the inaugural Visiting Fellow in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive at the University of Colorado Boulder where he will be leading a colloquium entitled “Knocking on Heaven’s (and America’s) Door: Shlomo Carlebach’s Challenge in Shifting and Sifting American Jewish Identity.
