Washington, DC – On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of Interfaith Alliance, Executive Director Rabbi Jack Moline released the following statement following the death of former board member David Cohen.

“It is with great sadness that we learned of David Cohen’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. David was an inspiration to a generation of activists looking to change the world. David’s decades of experience in the non-profit advocacy world was an invaluable resource to Interfaith Alliance as we sought to increase the impact of our work. We were honored to have him as a member of our board and to consider ourselves just one small piece of the incredible legacy he leaves behind.”

“Particularly for those of us living in the Washington area, we will miss seeing him around town, at community events and activist meetings and, of course, at Politics and Prose.”
