In May, 1844, he accepted the rabbinate of Lemberg. Here in a comparatively short time he opened a well-equipped "Normalschule" of which he was the superintendent, dedicated a new reform temple, abolished many old abuses, and did not rest until the degrading tax on kosher meat and , imposed upon the Jewish community by the government, was removed. In 1902 the Lviv/Lemberg Jewish community commissioned a portrait of Abraham Kohn. The posthumous portrait was painted by a Lviv-based Jewish painter Wilhelm Wachtel (1875-1952). Presently this portrait is in the collection of the Voznytsky Lviv National Gallery in Lviv, Ukraine. (en)
  • Авраам Кон (Abraham Kohn, ивр. ‏אברהם כהן‏‎, 1 января 1807, Залужаны, Богемия — 7 сентября 1848, Лемберг, Галиция) — первый реформистский главный раввин Львова (Лемберга). Согласно многим свидетельствам того времени, причиной его смерти было отравление. В 1828 году он поступил в Пражский университет, где изучал философию. Часть времени он также уделял изучению раввинских дисциплин. В июле 1833 года, он был назначен раввином города Хоэнемс, где он жил одиннадцать лет. Кроме создания нескольких благотворительных обществ, он принимал участие в модернизации школ для молодёжи, и внёс некоторые реформы в синагогальную службу. Богослужение по прежнему проходило на иврите, но проповедь и молитва за главу государства читалась на немецком языке. В мае 1844 года он согласился стать раввином города Львов (Лемберг). В Лемберге в течение сравнительно короткого времени он открыл школу «Нормалшуле», где он был директором, и начал строить новую реформистскую синагогу. Раввин Кон выступал против налога на кошерное мясо и субботние свечи, налагавшегося правительством. В результате его деятельности эти налоги были аннулированы. (ru)
