Temple Beth El, Detroit's First Temple,

By IRVING I. KATZ

Executive Secretary
Temple Beth El

Temple Beth El was
founded in 1850 by Sarah
and Isaac Cozens, principal-
ly at the initiative of Mrs.
Cozens.
Isaac Cozens was born in
Germany and came to New
York in 1820. His original
family name was Tobias.
When he arrived in New
York he was met by his
cousin. The immigration in-
spector asked him for his
name. Isaac didn't know
any English and he turned
to his cousin and said in
German "What did the in-
spector say, cousin?"
The inspector heard the
word "cousin" and before
Isaac had a chance to an-
swer him, he put down his
name as "Cousins", which
later became Cozens.
During the Civil War,
Isaac Cozens sold horses to
the government for the
Union Army. He died in 1864
and was buried in New York
City.
Sarah Cozens was born in
Germany in 1809. She was a
pious woman. Her pictures
show her wearing a sheitel.
She died in 1875 and was
buried in Temple Beth El's
Section North F of Wood-
mere Cemetery.
When the Cozens arrived
in Detroit in the summer of
1850, Detroit did not have as
yet the required traditioal
quorum of 10 Jewish males,
ages 13 and over, to conduct
a minyan. By the fall of
1850, however, Detroit could
boast of 12 German-Jewish
families and Sarah Cozens,
having been accustomed in
Germany and New York
City to attend religious serv-
ices regularly, began to
urge her co-religionists to
form a congregation.
The first minyan services
and the first organization
meeting for a congregation
were held in their home on
Congress and St. Antoine
Streets. An historical mark-
er, authorized by the Mich-
igan Historical Commission,
was recently erected on the
site of the Cozens' home,
commemorating the loca-

Bigamy OK Sought

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
Israel's 18-year ban on bi-
gamy has been challenged
by Arabs on religious
grounds. The Koran allows
up to five wives. -
Israeli Arab contacts with
Arabs in the administered
territories after the Six-Day
War have helped cause the
problem because the dowry
was roughly $1,500, or half
the average price in pre-
1967 Israel.

religious services were held
in Detroit.
The, small Torah which
Isaac and Sarah Cozens
brought with them to De-

Mr. and Mrs. Cozens had
five daughters: Caroline
(Mrs. Joseph Strauss), Re-
becca (Mrs. Emanuel
Schloss), Rosa (Mrs. Henry
Herzog), Hannah (Mrs.
Meyer Israel) and Celia
(Mrs. David Kaufman)_.
Mrs. Clarence H. Enggass
(Helen) of Southfield, is a
descendant of the Cozens.
She is the daughter of Louis
and Pauline Schloss Stras-
burger, granddaughter of
Emanuel and Rebecca Co-

Detroit and a descendant of

Jewish family.
