    I have seen a picture of the never of rabbi matlin and I find it strange that it doesn’t say ..hacohen…As we are a family of cohanim. Can anyone shed light on this please

    In the book Orthodox Judaism in America it says that before Rabbi Matlin went to Iowa, he was in Montana trying to build a Jewish community but was unsuccessful.

    He was definitely a Kohen. There is a famous story where his son Akiva left medical school because he was a Kohen. As a side, Akiva was why he started a school in the first place.
