Rabbi Yisroel Cohen

ישראל ב"ר שניאור זלמן הכהן

Rav, Ilia, Minsk, Belarus

Date of Death: Thu. March 19, 1903 - Adar 20 5663


MYSTERY
Rav Yisroel Cohen was the older brother of “The Malach”, Rav Chaim Avroham Dover Levine (Cohen) and arrived on these shores May 22, 1886 aboard the SS Catalonia along with his wife and five children. The Rav settled on Henry Street on the Lower East Side.
The Rebbitzen passed away a few year later on June 10, 1890. Where she was buried seems to be a mystery as here death certificate lists Union Field which was later crossed out and someone wrote in Bayside (Pitkin Avenue).

Rabbi Ben Tzion Chodosh

בן ציון ב"ר דוד הלוי

Hebrew Teacher, New York City

Date of Death: Sun. November 7, 1943 - Cheshvan 19 5704


Bio Information:
Rav Chodosh arrived on these shores sometime prior to World War I with the plans of eventual bring over the rest of his family.  The Rav, had a brother and two sisters in New York who initially supported him while he looked for work. However, his refusal to work on shabbos made holding a job extremely difficult forcing him to find new employment every Sunday. Eventually he found a Sexton/ Hebrew Teacher opportunity which allowed him to save up enough money for him to reunite his family in New York City.  Unfortunately , due to the untimely passing of his wife and the outbreak of World War One this never happened.  Among his children, Rav Meir Chodosh went on to become the famed Mashgiach of the Chevron Yeshiva.
