CCJS welcomes first Cohn Visiting Chair in Jewish Thought, assistant director

The Saint Leo University Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies (CCJS) hosted an open house and welcome reception on Wednesday, August 31, for Rabbi David Maayan, the center’s inaugural Maureen and Douglas Cohn Visiting Chair in Jewish Thought and assistant director of CCJS.

The CCJS shares that Rabbi David Maayan comes to Saint Leo University from Boston College where he was an instructor of Judaism and Christianity in Dialogue for the past academic year (2021-2022). He has an extensive teaching background in academia, secondary education, and community settings.

This visiting chair position is a two-year visiting appointment with the possibility of a third-year renewal as a full-time faculty member in the College of Arts and Sciences. The position was made possible by the generosity of Maureen and Douglas Cohn of Tampa, FL.
