Gabriel M. Cohen (1908-2007) began publishing a Kentucky edition of the Jewish Post in 1930 and founded the Indiana edition 5 years later. The National Jewish Post & Opinion premiered in 1948, and the Missouri edition ran from 1948 through 1992. At one time, there were two other editions - one for Chicago and one for New York. Subscribers to the national edition come from all over the United States, Canada, and Israel, with a few international subscribers.

Many well-known writers got their start with the newspaper, including Carl Alpert, Moshe Kohn, Yossi Klein Halevy and Daniella Ashkenazy.

Born to Isaac and Jennie Rosenbaum Cohen in Louisville, Ky., on Aug. 31, 1908, he was premature and too weak to even suckle. In those days before IVs, a neighbor finally came up with the idea to feed him with an eye dropper

Gabe Cohen was preceded in death by his first wife of six months, Louise Wilson Cohen in 1933, and in 1999 by his wife of 60 years, Helen Aronovitz Cohen, who was the mother of his eight children, and by his granddaughter Devorah Leah Cohen. He is survived by children Larry, Ted, Miriam, Debbie, Benzion, Jennie, Hermine and Rena; 25 grandchildren, and 28 greatgrandchildren.

He was a runner and a boxer in his college days.
