GREENWICH – David Cohen, director of schools at Temple Sholom in Greenwich, recently completed his Masters degree in Jewish Education from Gratz College.
Cohen joined the staff of Temple Sholom in 2016. Cohen holds a Bachelors in Human Development and Early Childhood, a Master’s in Early Childhood Education Administration and all but a dissertation toward a PhD in Educational Leadership. Cohen enrolled in the Masters of Jewish Education program in search of a deeper and more meaningful connection with the culture, the language and the history of Judaism.
“This was an intense experience,” says Cohen, “but I feel that the community really appreciates cutting-edge education in every facet. This second Masters from Gratz College complements my other degrees and rounds out my education. It gives me new skills and takes my educational experience to the next level.”
David Cohen works closely in the Temple Sholom Learning Center (religious school) with Rabbi Kevin Peters, director of Judaic studies. Peters was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary, from which he received a Master’s in Jewish Education.
David Cohen resides in Trumbull with his wife, Alexa, who is an early childhood director.
