Dr. Solomon Soils-Cohen, member of a family which settled in this country during Colonial times and well-known for his activities in behalf of the Jewish Publication Society, died here last night at the age of 90. A noted diagnostician and for many years a member of the Jefferson Medical College faculty, Dr. Cohen served on the council of the Jewish Agency from 1929 to 1940.
In addition to several important medical works, Dr. Cohen was the author of a number of translations from the Hebrew medieval poet, Moses Ibn Ezra and in 1940 published “Judaism and Science and Other Addresses,” a collection of his writings and speeches. He was a founder of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America and contributed to many Jewish and general encyclopedias and periodicals.
