the Life and Times of Leopold Cohn conference, Dec. 4-6, 2019

We would have probably not paid much attention to the early history of the Chosen People Ministries, and to Leopold Cohen, the founder of the mission, if it were not for the energy and resourcefulness of his son, Joseph Hoffman Cohn. It was Joseph Cohn, who turned his father’s successful neighborhood mission into one of the largest and most influential global enterprises in the history of Jewish evangelisation.
