Rabbi Elizabeth Bonney CohenBack
Rabbi Elizabeth Bonney-Cohen is originally from Overland Park and recently began her new role as Rabbi for Outreach and Young Family Engagement at Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy. As a convert to Judaism, she understands what it feels like to be on the “outside” of Jewish community and she is driven to bring inspiring and empowering Judaism to all who seek it.
She is an alumna of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship and Hillel International’s Office of Innovation Fellowship for Rabbinic Entrepreneurs. She holds a B.A. from William Jewell College in Religion, Philosophy, and Gender Studies & Human Sexuality, an M.Div. from Yale Divinity School, and Rabbinic Ordination/M.J.Ed. from Hebrew College.
While her academic and professional achievements take up most of the space on her resumé, Elizabeth’s most proud accomplishments pertain to her family, taking her roles as daughter, sister, wife, and imma (mother) as primary in her life.
