KOHEN, ELEAZAR BEN ZE'EV WOLF (d. 1883), Polish rabbi and author. Kohen was the son-in-law of Jacob *Lorbeerbaum. He served as rabbi in Makow, Pultusk, Plock, and finally in Sochaczew. Among his pupils were Aaron *Walden, author of Shem ha-Gedolim he-Ḥadash (1864), to which he gave an approbation. Kohen wrote Zikhron Nifla'ot, a commentary on the Passover Haggadah (1880) and a commentary on Avot (1889). His novellae on the Shulḥan Arukh, the Talmud, and Maimonides were published by his son Joshua under the title Ḥiddushei Maharakh (2 vols., 1897–1913). He published a number of eulogies on contemporary rabbis, among them Zekher Ẓaddik Yesod Olam (1866) on Isaac Meir Alter.
