A native Atlantan, Cohen attended Georgia
State University where he majored in print
journalism and minored in religion. In 1994,
that educational background led him to create
Torah from Dixie, a weekly publication
circulated to synagogues across the country.
In 1997, he published a 300-page book by the
same name. Cohen went to work for the Atlanta
Jewish Times where he was a writer as
well as the editor of their Arts and Entertainment
section. After that he became Special Sections
Editor for the Fulton County Daily Report.
And in January 2004, he became editor of Atlanta
Jewish Life magazine.
Cohen, who admits to not sleeping much, channeled
his creative energies to create Jewsweek
magazine (www.jewsweek.com) in his spare
time. During his four years as editor (he
left Jewsweek in April 2005), the pop culture
Webzine attracted more than 50,000 visitors
a month and was regarded as the foremost national
publication for its demographic (20-40 year
olds). Cohen, who is often asked to join panel
discussions on Gen X Jews in America, is currently
authoring a book chronicling his religious
road trip through Bible Belt churches.
Cohen, a rabbi's son, married a minister's daughter in January 2004 in a kosher wedding catered by, of all places, The Varsity. They live near Emory University with their two dogs, Aydah and Tivo.

|Bradford R. Pilcher
Bradford R. Pilcher, also a native Atlantan,
also attended Georgia State University. He
majored in religion and minored in film, putting
his education to minimal use writing for such
publications as Wired News, the Digital Bits
and Jewsweek magazine. In November of 2002,
he joined the staff of Jewsweek,
eventually becoming Literary Editor. He's
also worked for Turner Broadcasting Systems,
and spent a brief stint in their London office.
Whenever possible Pilcher travels and speaks on Jewish topics to a variety of groups. He's consulted for the National Museum of America Jewish History, spoken before the Jewish Funders Network, and taught Jewish middle and high school kids, among other venues. And when he's not doing this, he plays poker - a lot.
With his free time, Pilcher is currently at work on two books, one a work of steampunk fiction and another a work of long-form journalism. He also spends considerable time fending off his mother's inquiries regarding his love life, but wants her to know he loves her very much and promises to give her grandchildren eventually.
