Rabbi Elizabeth Bonney-Cohen (Rabbi EBC): From Brookline to Kansas... From Instagram to Living Rooms


The Thought Experiment Podcast: An exploration of fresh ideas and active minds in the world of Jewish Education.

Rabbi Elizabeth Bonnie Cohen

Ordained from Hebrew College, Rabbi Elizabeth Bonney-Cohen serves as Assistant Rabbi and Director of Outreach & Innovation for Congregation Kehillath Israel (KI), where she also runs Base BSTN. Base BSTN is part of a national network of dynamic rabbinic couples who model intentional Jewish living by inviting young people into their homes for living room learning, Shabbat meals, and holiday celebrations. As a convert to Judaism, Rabbi EBC understands what it feels like to be on the "outside" of Jewish community and to be intimidated by the learning curve that is so often a barrier for people--whether they are born to Jewish parents or not. She is driven by her background to bring inspiring and empowering Judaism to all who seek it.
