Rabbi Yisroel Cohen

ישראל ב"ר שניאור זלמן הכהן

Rav, Kurenitz, Minsk, Belarus

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


SPECIAL THANKS TO THE MEMBERS OF MORESHES CHACHMEI AMERICA, CHUNA LEIB BOSS, &  YIDEL RAPPAPORT FOR THEIR COUNTLESS HOURS OF RESEARCH IN HELPING TO LOCATE RAV KOHEN’S KEVER.

Bio Information:
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 her death certificate lists Union Field which was later crossed out and someone wrote in Bayside (Pitkin Avenue).
