T H E J E W I S H Q U A R T E R LY R E V I E W , Vol. 106, No. 4 (Fall 2016) 440449 SARAH BUNIN BENOR Hebrew Union College--Jewish Institute of Religion W H E N G ER S O N C O H E N sat down to prepare his 1966 Hebrew Teachers College commencement address,1 he was faced with a decision: in which language should he deliver the speech? Hebrew would have been an appropriate choice, given the Hebraist orientation of Hebrew Teachers College. English would also have been appropriate, given that it was the primary language of Cohen and most of his audience members (and perhaps the only language of some of the graduates' guests). Cohen decided on a compromise: he began his remarks in Hebrew (unfortunately the transcript begins after these opening words, so we do not know what he said), and then he gave the bulk of his speech in English. But his English was not simply English; it incorporated a number of Hebrew words, such as "Torah," "shekel," and "alef"; hybrid Hebrew-English words like "mishnaic" and "geonic"; and several phrases quoted from rabbinic literature
