Biographical Note

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 Congregation B'nai Israel from 1888 to 1949. In 1889, he married Mollie Levy of Galveston. The couple had two children. Cohen quickly became a prominent community leader in Texas and was influential in religious and social welfare activism. He was especially well-known for his work with hospitals, schools, and immigration. From 1907 to 1914, Cohen helped lead the Galveston Movement, a U.S. immigration plan that encouraged Jewish immigrants fleeing eastern European and Russian persecution to settle away from East Coast cities and pass through the port of Galveston before settling in the western United States. Cohen was also a noted prison reformer and served on the Texas Prison Board. A Talmudic scholar, Cohen published a number of essays on the subject. Cohen retired as rabbi of Congregation B'nai Israel in September 1949 and continued to serve his congregation as rabbi emeritus until his death on June 12, 1952.
