_Israel Cohen, Talmudic scholar
who was a familiar figure in the
center of Jewish life on Hastings
St. 50 years ago, died Nov. 3 at
age 87.
Mr. Cohen, 18642 Tracey, started
a Yiddish newspaper delivery route
on that street during World War
I, and subsequently, in the 1920s
and '30s, took his route to the 12th
Street area.
A small, frail, grey-haired man,
he delivered the Forward, Tog-
Morgen Journal and Tageblatt to
the homes of many families whose
children are well known in Detroit
communal and civic life.
He numbered among his cus-
tomers the Burdick family on
Philadelphia; the Levin family
on Virginia Park; the Shevitz
family on Edison; the Weisswas-
ser family on Taylor; the Karbal
family on Blaine; the Sandler
family on Euclid; the Bielfield
family on Taylor.
Devoutly Orthodox, he had ac-
quired a reputation as a Talmudic
scholar. Possessed of an unusual
retentive memory, he was not dis-
couraged by his failing eyesight,
which, for the last 15 years had
made it impossible for him to read
the fine print of the books of
Talmud.
His lack of vision became a chal-
lenge to him to memorize pages
and pages of Talmud, and the
scholars at the synagogue where
he studied often found him run-
ning ahead of them, even though
they were reading while he was
reciting from memory.
He would spend hours on the
telephone discussing Halakha with
Rabbi Bakst of Yeshivath Beth Ye-
hudah and then would sit for
hours at a time repeating what he
had learned until he mastered it
and committed it to memory.
In spite of his failing vision,
he was a regular daily synagogue
worshiper, recently at the Shom-
rey Synagogue, and for about 30
years at the Taylor Street Shul.
In order to cross Schaefer Hwy.,
he would call the shul before
, leaving home and would be met
by someone from the synagogue
to assist him in crossing.
He was active in the Yeshivath
Beth. Yehudah and supported ye-
shivot and charitable organizations
throughout the country and in
Israel.
He is survived by a son, Sam,
controller of Packer Markets; two
brothers, Louis and Dave of Los
Angeles; one sister and two grand-
children.
