    There was a Rabbi (Revrend) Noach Kaplan who published severel books, who was also a Kohen, perhaps they were family related.

    Rev. Noach was a badchan, not a rav.

    Kaplan means priest in Russian or Polish, and is a common name between Kohanim.

    [Farshlufen, LOL for the Badchan compliment on Noach kaplan, his books are an example on the poor quality of preachers and revrends in the US those days]
