Temple Sinai will be honored to have Marc Morial, former mayor of New Orleans and current president of the National Urban League to speak at Shabbat Services and to present Rabbi Cohn with the Urban League’s Living Legend Award. This award honors those who most exemplify the ideals of the Urban League movement. As an historic civil rights and urban advocacy organization, the National Urban League honors Rabbi Cohn’s longstanding work on issues of civil rights, human rights and community inclusion.
“Rabbi Cohn was the driving force behind the revival of the City Human Relations Commission,” said Marc Morial, President of the National Urban League, and former Mayor of New Orleans.
Rabbi Cohn has also been one of the important forces over the years in building bridges among New Orleans diverse religions, ethnic and racial communities. “Ed Cohn demonstrated an enthusiastic willingness to work alongside me while I was Mayor on very important issues of police reform, public safety, and community inclusion, and continues doing so today.”
Rabbi Cohn has further made an enormous difference in making New Orleans a better and more open city, and has embraced inter-faith married families, and L.G.B.T. members of Temple Sinai. The National Urban League is proud to recognize Rabbi Ed Cohn with its “Living Legend” award.
