Streicker Center: Benyamin Cohen and Mandy Patinkin

In Cohen’s new book, The Einstein Effect, he interviews people from all walks of life who are inspired by Einstein – including actor Mandy Patinkin. Einstein launched the International Rescue Committee to save his fellow German Jews from the Holocaust, and it remains one of the largest refugee aid organizations in the world. Patinkin, a longtime refugee activist, is the organization’s ambassador.

The News Director of the Forward, Benyamin Cohen is also the author of My Jesus Year: A Rabbi’s Son Wanders the Bible Belt in Search of His Own Faith.

Moderated by Jodi Rudoren, editor of the Forward.
