Revolt of Rabbi Morris Cohen
Exploring the Passion & Piety of a Modern-Day Pharisee
Messianic Jewish Pub & Res Llc
A brilliant school psychologist, Rabbi Morris Cohen went on a one-man strike to protest the systematic mislabeling of slow learning pupils as “Learning Disabled.” His disciplinary hearing is a hilarious read! This garrulous man lost his job and family, but achieved a major historic victory causing reform. An 8th-generation Orthodox rabbi and modern-day Pharisee, Rabbi Cohen openly struggled with Judaism and the loss of everything, with his trusted friend the author, who is a born again believer in Jesus.
