Rabbi Dr. Aryeh Cohen, professor of rabbinic literature at the Ziegler School for Rabbinic Studies of the American Jewish University, and the rabbi in residence at Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, will speak about “Deep Shabbos: On Doing Nothing as Doing Something” at a Valley Beit Midrash lecture, 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 14, at Congregation Or Tzion, 9096 E. Bahia Drive, Suite 106, Scottsdale.

Cohen’s latest book is “Justice in the City: An Argument from the Sources of Rabbinic Judaism” and he is also working on a feminist commentary to Tractate Shabbat of the Babylonian Talmud, which is part of an international feminist commentary project on the Babylonian Talmud that will be published by Mohr Siebeck.
