Ben Cohen is a Jewish man who has gone where possibly no other Jew has gone before.

He’s the son of an Orthodox Rabbi, who spent a whole year, visiting every brand of Christian community that he could find.

His adventure took him from mosh pits to mountain tops and monasteries, and just about everything in between.

Ben’s aim was not to change religions, nor was it to criticise Christianity. His aim was to see what he could learn, in order to become a better Jew. Ben wrote a book about the experience, called “My Jesus Year”.
