Response to Prof. Steven M. Cohen, Recipient of the 2010 Marshall Sklare Award

By Ari Y. Kelman

Association for the Social Scientific Study of Jewry (ASSJ), December 19, 2010

 

Prof. Kelman offers his tribute to Prof. Steven M. Cohen – his friend, colleague and teacher. He states that he has learned much from Steven and benefits from his ability to analyze and frame issues. Steven is gifted at seeing what is there and making sense of it. Though he thinks that Steven is spot on in his assessment of the four biggest issues facing American Jewry, he states that he is struck at how little we know about the economics of Jewish life. He then proceeds to demonstrate the economic component of each of the “I”s in Steven’s analysis: Intermarriage, Israel, Institutions, and In-distress Jews.
