Russian physician; born at Zhagory, government of Kovno, Feb. 11, 1865. After he had studied Talmud under private tutors, Kohn attended the gymnasium at Libau, Courland, and was graduated from the University of Dorpat as doctor of medicine. Kohn has contributed to "Ha-Meliẓ" many articles on medical subjects. In 1902 he published in "Ha-Meassef," a supplement to "Ha-Meliẓ," an article entitled "Ha-Rofe," on the physician in the written and oral law. He wrote, besides, a work entitled "Ot Berit" (Cracow, 1903), on the history of circumcision from Abraham to the present time. This is the first work of its kind in Hebrew having a scientific value and in which circumcision is treated at length.
Kohn is now (1904) practising as a physician at Velizh, government of Vitebsk.
