Cantor Hans Cohn
Cantor Hans Cohn passed away surrounded by his loving family on January 4, 2020 at the age of 93 in Redwood City, California. He led an extraordinary life.
Hans was born on May 31, 1926, in Berlin, Germany. His first years were lived happily with his parents who owned a small women’s clothing shop. As Hitler came to power, his life drastically changed. His synagogue where he attended school was torched on Kristallnacht. As soon as they could, his family escaped to Shanghai, where he lived for seven years. His mother died within five months of their arrival.
During the years in Shanghai (from ages 11 to 19) he experienced hunger, poverty and death around him, yet he still managed to have his bar mitzvah and take singing lessons. He had to drop out of school to get a job, but he learned to be an expert cook, working in restaurants. When the war was over, he stowed away on a ship to Australia. He was caught but managed to slip away and live as an undocumented person under the name Johnny Corn. Finally, he turned himself in and with the help of the Jewish community avoided jail time and was able to leave for the U.S.
In Los Angeles, he worked as a chef until he was drafted into the Army at Fort Ord. As a soldier, he drove the Army bus to take enlisted Jews to a synagogue in Salinas, where he met his wife, Eva, our mother. Once his enlistment was over, they married and remained in Carmel where they opened a gourmet French restaurant, Le Coq D’Or. However, his heart was in music and Jewish life, so he took Eva, who was pregnant, and their two small children to New York to study to become a Cantor. Five years later, after graduation, he spent two years as Cantor in South Bend, Indiana. Then the family moved to Palo Alto, California, where he served as Cantor at Congregation Beth Jacob in Redwood City with Rabbi Teitelbaum for over three decades. He earned a master’s degree from Stanford and an honorary doctorate from Hebrew Union College.
In the ’90s, he was diagnosed with throat cancer, but after two successful surgeries, he was able to live cancer-free for many years. Sadly, his voice was greatly impacted, and he was no longer able to eat normally. Yet, in retirement, he led services for Jewish holidays on cruises. He lost Eva to lung cancer shortly after their 50th anniversary. As part of his healing process, he published his autobiography, “Risen from the Ashes, Tales of a Musical Messenger,” which aptly describes his great courage and indomitable will to survive. He married Nina, who has been by his side for 20 years. In all his years, Judaism, service to others and education have been his guiding values.
Hans is preceded in death by his parents, Max and Ida Cohn, and his wife, Eva Cohn. He is survived by his second wife, Nina, and his daughters Becki Cohn-Vargas (Rito Vargas), Ruth Cohn (Michael Lewin) and Barbara Liepman (Michael Liepman), and six grandchildren.
Donations can be sent in his memory to the Hans Cohn Music Fund and CBJ Cares Committee by going to the Congregation Beth Jacob website donation page at bethjacobrwc.org/donate.

“It’s kind of two different ways you can take it: more of a realistic, elegant way or more of a fun and cartoon-y way,” Toney said.

This year’s theme is “The Power of Hope,” and Toney and her team are creating an undersea landscape with a submarine floating above. How does their “Aquatic Aspirations” design tie into that? The idea is that seafarers are out hoping to spot some treasure, but end up finding the wonders of the natural world even more rewarding.
To make that concept believable, Toney said her team has been in constant contact with farmers throughout California as they choose the right flowers for the job — color, shape and seasonality all factor in.
And that’s just the logistical piece.

Once they pick out flowers, the team has to figure out how to arrange them in a way that quickly and clearly conveys the float’s message.
“You only have a few seconds for people to see your float, so it’s really critical to use things that allow people to understand what it is,” Toney said.
While Toney initially signed up for float club as a creative and social outlet, she’s also a business administration major who’s learning lessons that would play out in her future career — from working to secure the right flowers to ironing out any disputes that might come up.
It all takes a lot of ingenuity — and, at least this year, a lot of cleanup. Toney’s team is using tiny plastic vials to fill the float with green flowers, and each one will need cleaning. They’re also using upside-down floral arrangements to mimic the look of jellyfish, and — since natural materials are a must — coffee grounds to color a sunken ship.

At the end of it all, there’s nothing like seeing the final product with everyone else as it makes its way down Pasadena’s Colorado Boulevard, Toney said.
