Elisha Levin’s Family
Elisha Beth Levin was reportedly born on June 17, 1978 in California. Elisha’s father, Rabbi Moshe Levin, and mother, Barbara Levin, are divorced. Rabbi Moshe is of the Congregation Ner Tamid in San Francisco.
Elisha was legally named Sheila at birth, after Rabbi Moshe’s sister who died as an infant. A few months later, Barbara realized their daughter was named after a baby who passed on, and they renamed her Elisha, which came from rearranging the letters in “Sheila.”

Elisha Levin and Buzzy Cohen’s Relationship
Elisha Levin married Buzzy Cohen on April 17, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. They have a daughter, Lucerne Rae Cohen (born 2013).
When asked about how they picked their daughter’s name, Buzzy said: “I was looking through names of plants and flowers. Lucerne is the French name of alfalfa, but it has a really pretty purple flower. My grandfather on my dad’s side was Louie, so there was that L connection. He was a character. Really fun and sweet and funny, a great guy. He set the tenor for my dad and me and our sense of humor, what it is to be part of a family in a community, all that stuff. We call her Louie a lot.”
Her middle name, Rae, is after Elisha’s beloved grandmother.
