Fellow Pursues
Judaic Studies

Rabbi Azaryah Cohen, a Detroit native
and graduate of Yeshiva University in
New York, was selected as a teaching fel-
low at the Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik

Rabbi Cohen is one of six young
teachers selected for the first class of fel-
lows to participate in a yearlong, inten-
sive course of study and claSsroom expe-

teaching skills. The fellowship will be
administered under the mentorship of
five teachers at the Maimonides School
in Brookline, where the program is
Under the direction of Dr. Jeremy
Kahan, the group is involved in the daily
life of the school, learning about class-
room management and philosophy as
well as observing and assisting students
and teachers in classrooms. Rabbi Cohen

the other fellows are each enrolled in
graduate level courses at Harvard and
Brandeis universities. They also are par-

pate in the program, the fellows make a
commitment to teach in North America
for at least three years.
The hope is for the program to
continue, with a larger group next
