Rabbi Bruce Louis Cohen – Beth El, Two Testament Synagogue, Manhattan
Rabbi Bruce (hullo Louis) Cohen will give the d’rash (sermon) at Beit Ariel on Friday 2nd April 2021. The erev Shabbat service commences at 18h15 and usually concludes at 19h30. Rabbi Bruce and his wife, Debbi, will also lead us in worship. You are invited to attend either physically (Kingdom Hub, 3 Roodehek Street, Gardens) or virtually. All the necessary protocols are followed at our physical services.
Rabbi Bruce Louis Cohen serves in our synagogue, Beth El in Manhattan, as both senior clergy and as music director. A multi-lingual scholar and poly-instrumental professional musician, Rabbi Cohen’s combined skill sets and achievements in theology and the creative arts seem to make Manhattan inevitable as where he would serve. He has long occupied “front-line” niches in both theological leadership and creative artistry: his range of experience and skills include being a yeshiva instructor of rabbis, a private school principal, teacher, and author of curriculum; an international shaliakh (official envoy for North America’s largest Messianic Jewish alliance), and more. On the artistic side, he has done front-line theatrical directing/producing, musical composition, recording, producing, performance, concert band conducting and stage-directing. He has been a contributing author and editor to many books and periodicals. He has also long been acknowledged to be among the foremost pioneer-generation Messianic Jewish music composers, performers, and recording artists, as the Music Review in The Messianic Times emphatically affirmed when his Greatest Hits album was released in 2006.
