Rabbi Morris Cohen, a brilliant school psychologist, went on a one-man strike to protest the systematic mislabeling of slow learning pupils as handicapped in order to extract special-education money from the state. Rabbi Cohen’s sense of outrage was exceeded only by his irresistible sense of humor, which makes his disciplinary hearing a hilarious read. He achieved a historic victory by heralding reform of the state’s billion-dollar special education program but lost his job, friends and the love of his family.

Glimpse into the mind of this eighth-generation Orthodox rabbi and modern day Pharisee as he struggled with rabbinic Judaism and the identity of the Messiah. The author, an award-winning journalist, playwright and a Messianic Jew, developed a most unlikely friendship through thundering theological disputes and tender heart-to-heart talks with Rabbi Cohen, a sworn enemy of Jews for Jesus.

Veteran journalist Anthony Cardinale gives us a fascinating glimpse into the mind set of Orthodox Jews awaiting the coming of the Messiah. —Rabbi Jonathan Bernis, President, Jewish Voice Ministries Int’l

Mr. Speaker, it is a great pleasure to thank Rabbi Morris A. Cohen of Buffalo for his inspiring and thoughtful invocation in this Chamber today. Rabbi Cohen contributes to the betterment of our young people as a school psychologist.—Congressman Jack F. Kemp

A graduate of St. Bonaventure University, Cardinale earned a master’s degree at Northwestern University and has been an adjunct professor at five colleges. He has authored articles for Charisma and Ministries magazines as well as The Messianic Times.  Six of his plays have been produced -- and his seventh was expanded and published in book form as The Red Heifer: A Jewish Cry for Messiah in 2012.  His wife, Carol “Shirah” Cardinale, is a singer/composer who produced the messianic music CD “Purple Heart.”
