In 1993, after becoming rabbi emeritus, he conducted research on "Raising Children in an Interfaith Family," published by the Jewish Outreach Institute.Since 1993, he has taught an Introduction to Judaism course primarily but not exclusively for interfaith couples.This book is his attempt to convey to skeptical Jews and searching non-Jews Whats Special about Judaism?"This volume offers sound scholarship and a very personal and consistently interesting approach to Judaism that relates to fundamental Jewish values, practices and beliefs to the everyday concerns of todays readers.Rabbi Cohen understands his readers questions before they are asked, and provides them with a liberal understanding of the Jewish tradition that is refreshingly honest and intellectually compelling." Rabbi Eric Yoffie, President of the Union for Reform Judaism."Henry Cohens journey through the crucial aspects and history of Judaism and the Jewish people is amazingly deft at transmitting 4,000 years of struggle in a succinct, inviting way. His invitations to join in wrestling with the central issues and questions are a powerful teaching not only of how to learn from the past but of how to create the future."Rabbi Arthur Waskow, director of the Shalom Center, author and leader of Jewish Renewal.
