The Archbishop of Canterbury said Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen’s commitment to Jewish-Christian dialogue was a blessing that will live on.

“I am saddened to hear of the death of Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen. He was a person of great spiritual depth, wisdom and compassion. His strong commitment to Jewish-Christian dialogue was a blessing to Christians of many different churches, and his legacy will live on in strengthened friendship, deepened understanding and renewed commitment to work together. My prayers are with all of those grieving and my hope is that as Jewish and Christian communities we are reminded and inspired to build relationships and learn from one another.”
