a| Henry Cohen was born April 7, 1863 in London England. In 1884 he was ordained a rabbi and led congregations in Kingston, Jamaica (1884-1885) and Woodville, Mississippi (1885-1888) before transferring to Galveston, Texas where he led the Temple B'nai Israel from 1888 to 1949. Cohen was influential in religious and social welfare activities in Texas; he was especially well-known for his work on hospitals, schools and immigration issues. A noted prison reformer, Cohen served on the Texas Prison Board. An authority on the Talmud, Cohen published a number of essays. He married Mollie Levy of Galveston and the couple had two children.
