We welcome our first Orthodox intern - Atara Cohen - who will serve as Cooperberg-Rittmaster Pastoral and Educational Intern.
Atara graduated Princeton University with a BA in Religion and a certificate in Judaic Studies, where she focused her non-academic time on interfaith work.
After studying Torah in a variety of settings, including Midreshet Nishmat, Yeshivat Hadar, and the Drisha Institute throughout college, she began to study full time at Yeshivat Yeshivat Maharat.
She was a T'ruah Rabbinical Fellow for Human Rights, a JOIN for Justice fellow, and is a UJA Graduate fellow. She has taught Torah as a scholar in residence in multiple communities and served as a rabbinic intern at the Columbia-Barnard Hillel.
Atara currently lives on the Upper West Side, where she thinks about social justice issues, knits, and cooks inventive chickpea recipes.
