Cohen, Byron L. Sherwin and Seymour J.
Dr. Byron L. Sherwin, a leading scholar in Jewish theology, has served for over forty years as professor of Jewish philosophy and mysticism at Chicago’s Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies. He is the author of twenty-five books and over 150 articles, including In Partnership with God: Contemporary Jewish Law and Ethics; Why Be Good? and Jewish Ethics for the 21st Century. Active in international Jewish communal affairs and interfaith relations, Rabbi Sherwin was the first recipient of the “Man of Reconciliation” award from the Polish Council of Christians and Jews. Dr. Seymour J. Cohen (z""l) opened up to English readers the previously little-known genre of medieval Jewish ethical literature through his masterful translations of its classics, including The Ways of the Righteous; The Book of the Righteous and The Holy Letter. He was president of the Rabbinical Assembly and the Synagogue Council of America.
