Comp Lit Undergrad Kayla Cohen and her new book

Third year Comparative Literature ... student at Cal Kayla Cohen is studying English, Hebrew, Arabic literatures. Drawing from her travels and the interviews that she conducted with Jewish Diaspora leaders in 2017 and 2018, her new book (titled "The Full Severity of Our Connection") carefully examines the Jewish people’s links to the non-Jewish world and how these links have impacted different conceptions of Jewishness. She hopes that this book can reshape conversations on campus about Jewish history and identity for both Jewish and non-Jewish readers.  More information about the book can be found here.
