My brother, who was named for our paternal grandfather, and I have
always been told our grandfather, Elias KOHN of Cleveland, OH, was
an ordained rabbi.
He was employed at Temple On The Heights Cleveland, OH and I do
have his burial notice which included people I know nothing of."
Since Ethel Jean (Kowan) Saltz did not indicate her location, I hope
I am not giving her information that she has in "her own backyard."

I suggest that she log onto the website for Congregation B'nai
Jeshurun (aka Temple on the Heights): http://www.bnaijeshurun.org/
In May 1980, the congregation moved to it's present location, and
began using it's Hebrew name.

There is a history of the Temple. When the building, at the old
location, was expanded in the 1950s a chapel was given the name of
Kohn Chapel. It does not indicate who the Kohn person was that it
was named for. Possibly Ethel's relative, since he died in 1930
unexpectedly in his 40s. I'm sure that if Ethel contacted the shul
they might be able to give her the information she is seeking.
