Rabbi Joseph I. Cohen was born in Constantinople (Istanbul),Turkey. He received his training for the rabbinate in Turkey and accepted his first pulpit in Havana, Cuba in 1920 where he was spiritual leader of the Congregation Union Hebraica de Cuba. In 1934, Rabbi Cohen moved to Atlanta, Georgia, and was installed as the rabbi of Congregation Or VeShalom three days after his arrival. In addition to his rabbinical duties, he served as the teacher and principal of Or VeShalom's Hebrew school.

The collection consists of death, birth and marriage records of members of Congregation Or VeShalom, records of the Atlanta Rabbinical Association and records from various organizations in which Rabbi Cohen was active. Arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder. Finding aid available in library.
